  1. What is the iron?

It is known as a rhetorical figure that consists of transmitting information completely contrary to the message that is said or written. It can be used both for the purpose that the receiver recognizes the ironic turn and thus generate a certain sense of humor or complicity, or that he cannot detect it and the expression constitutes a kind of offense.

In that sense, the `` iron a is not usually accompanied by explicit indicators that clarify the real meaning of what is said, although it can either go to gestures or, in communication n written, in quotation marks, emoticons or a sign specifically used for irony in certain contexts: (?).

The word iron a comes from the Greek word eir n e a, which can be translated as dissimulation or pretense, because whoever uses it simulates an ignorance that he does not possess. An equivalent would be the Hispanic expression t play dumb.

Sarcasm consists of a form of cruel mockery or scathing irony.

It is often difficult to distinguish between irony and sarcasm . Perhaps because the latter includes irony in certain cases, provided it is a particularly cruel one.
