Abstract:   (3551 Views)
Ambiguity is one of the characteristics of some prominent contemporary poems and it is achieved by inducing original and preconceived concepts. One of the functions of such ambiguity is to create a sense of suspense. Suspension is a form of waiting in which the narrator puts the audience in a conscious and purposeful state of doubt and ignorance of the result of the narration, but with the help of linguistic elements, provides the possibility of thinking, predicting and discovering the missing link in poetic propositions. Creating a sense of suspense for the audience for understanding the meaning and purpose of the narrator creates a passion for reading. The reader's curiosity, along with the presuppositions, preconceptions, and possibilities that occur during the suspension, reproduces the meaning.
In this article, after examining linguistic and editorial factors of suspension, such as unfamiliar words, multilingualism, the existence of new terms, the use of new and native words, archaism, specialized terms, deletion, pronoun displacement, editorial aberrations, etc. we will analyze how do contemporary poets use these factors to create suspension with functions such as highlighting, defamiliarization, modernity, semantic development, polysemy, brevity, conveying the themes of indigenous culture, linguistic development and richness, so that they can engage the audience in the narrative.
