survey time

raise your hand if you know what "denouement" means. WITHOUT looking it up.
to me this is standard high school english class, but perhaps i had a weird high school.

I wasn't 100% sure, so I looked it up to see if I was right, but I was :)

Yeah, but I probably would have spelled it wrong.

Damn failed again by my over priced "Catholic" education, (face convays furry with God) now I cant use "for the public schoolers" as a mid sentence conjunction (did he just misuse the word conjunction, man who is this butcher of language?)

aaaand for those of us who don't know the answer OR care enough to look it up - going to tell us? :)

clerks. i saw that too! it made me apathetic and dumber. obviously.

I looked it up, I admit. I had one of those 'ooooooooooo, yeah, I remember that' moments. Shakespeare, yeah. I try not to remember.

I actually drew one recently. On an index card. I was doing one of those standard three act plot diagrams for my friend (inciting incident, rising action, climax, falling action=denouement.) A denouement, according to my index card, is a line slanting downwards from left to right at about a 35 degree angle.
