Two really good explanations of the term "irony" -- with examples.


Can Someone please explain to me the meening and diffence of irony and coincidence

Its very confusing to me

Not much difference. Still there is some.
A coincidence is more reserved for an unexpected set of two events. Such as it was a coincidence that I arrived at the intersection just as the dog ran out in front of me.
Irony is more like a lesson or hidden meaning in 2 events. Like it was ironic how me being a principal and my son is in detention half of the time.
