A connotation is a commonly understood subjective cultural or emotional association that some word or phrase carries, in addition to the word's or phrase's explicit or literal meaning, which is its denotation. A connotation is frequently described as either positive or negative, with regards to its pleasing or displeasing emotional connection. For example, a stubborn person may be described as being either strong-willed or pig-headed; although these have the same literal meaning (stubborn), strong-willed connotes admiration for the level of someone's will (a positive connotation), while pig-headed connotes frustration in dealing with someone (a negative connotation). i used wikipedia

Good. :) So the connotation of "mountain" in this sentence is negative. The adjectives make it negative; making Edward's body seem "dense, slow, and awkward." This is not a good thing! Negative connotation! :) Do you understand this a little more now?

Oh, okay, hee hee. OKay, so you're looking for the answer that is NOT a negative connotation. We gave you the definitions for the other words.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so the first 3 words have a negative vibe to them because you wouldnt want to be called plump ( which A and C are doing)and then you wouldnt want to be called rough ( which B is saying) so those are negative and D is a positive thing becasue its calling something impressive
anonymous
  • anonymous
If you looked up connotation which i did and its up there then you will understand the question just think about it for a second and you will hopefully understand the question:)
anonymous
  • anonymous
