What is the difference between the denotative and connotative meaning of a word?

(1) Answers

Denotative meaning of a word is its literal meaning. So, for example, if you have the word home, it is a building where people live, according to its denotative meaning. On the other hand, connotative meaning has to do with your personal feelings related to that particular word. So, usually, the connotative meaning of the word home is something pleasant and warm, because it is the home where your family lives and where you are happy. Hope this helps!
