Need a word/term/phrase

Recommended Posts

Thanks, guys, this is helpful.


Well, Candid, my daughter has pretty strong feelings about it and I think she wants to use the negative lables in her list of cons. She wants to use more charitable/sympathetic language herself.


Exactly the point.


As an example think of Swift's "A Modest Proposal." He suggests a simple idea that is so revolting that it makes the reader consider the overall problem in a new light.
