comment What exactly is “verbal irony”
from my own understanding I would say that sarcasm is in the strictest sense a type of caustic humour or sharp, bitter remark though not necessarily saying the opposite of something. Whereas verbal irony is not necessarily humourous but is the opposite of the intended meaning.
