Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Think of some examples of each kind of word: jargon, dialect, saying, humorous, TM, ironic, and figurative.
2. Does your language have these different levels? Can you give examples and translate some of them?
3. When would you use a humorous word instead of a serious one? When would you use figurative language?
