Uncle Tom's Cabin

Uncle Tom's cabin - List specific examples of Stowe's use of comic relief in Chapter 7 - aslan or jill??

  1. Diction is one’s choice of words and the clarity of one’s speech. Part of the humor in Chapters 6 and 7 arises from Sam’s diction. He uses long, difficult sounding words to express relatively sim- ple ideas. Sometimes the words are mispronounced or used incorrectly because Sam doesn’t really understand them but he wants to sound important. Locate several examples of Sam’s humorous diction, and write them below.

The comic relief comes in chapter 6 but not really in chapter 7.
