Hello, dear friendsicon_smile.gif
Could you tell me, what stylistic devices are used in this slogan?
"You can be someone's superhero"
(here's the poster itself https://i.pinimg.com/originals/02/06/f9/0206f926892adef3d8aca39741a85f69.jpg )

Thanks a lot!

I'm puzzled by the question. Everything in the poster is a stylistic device.

First, there're different classifications (theories), so the results and definitions may vary.

Second, we were taught there're three main stylistic/expression devices: (1) phonetic, (2) lexical, and (3) syntactic ones, let alone (4) the graphical level--a picture, amending the meaning.

Third, it's but a concoction of stylistic means and devices of different proportions--from a metaphor, a metonymy, a simile, and a hyperbola to a periphrasis and even euphemism or maxima.


Why, I still remember a strident text about Vodka shaped as a bottle.

I need to find here something like metaphor, pun, irony etc
but there seem to be nothing in here, I hoped that maybe somebody would see anything
