* BreakTheHaughty: Happens to Emma. She is a very endearing character -- open, sweet, generous, witty, energetic, a loyal friend and a devoted daughter; she is also what by modern standards might fairly be called a snob. Mr Knightley guides her and calls her on her bad behaviour sometimes. * BreakupBonfire: After showing them to Emma, Harriet Smith throws her (pretty pathetic) mementos of Mr Elton into a fire.

* DamnedByFaintPraise: Emma really resents Mrs Elton. Her close friends know about her opinion and they quite agree because Mrs Elton is really obnoxious. However, Emma doesn't want other people to know about it, so she might mention that Mrs Elton is "very pleasant and very elegantly dressed". %% * DeadpanSnarker: Mr Knightley, his brother John and Emma.

* TheGhost: We read a lot about a few characters we never get to meet, most particularly Frank's aunt and uncle and Mrs Elton's sister and brother-in-law. * GoldDigger: Mr Elton. He wanted to marry well and knew he could, being a man with a respectable position and good income as a parson. * GratuitousForeignLanguage: Mrs Elton, who uses what was then a tired old Italian catchphrase to refer to her husband. She even gets the phrase wrong, showing her to be not just small-minded and behind the times but also badly educated. Though the mispronunciation of the Italian phrase may be a mistake on the publisher's part rather than the character's. The argument is that Mr Elton would have corrected his wife at the first opportunity after her misusing the phrase and that she would have been too embarrassed to use the correct pronunciation.

* HypocriticalHumor: Mrs Elton says she much prefers old-fashioned politeness to "modern ease", even though her own manners go far beyond ease and well into over-familiarity. * IHaveThisFriend: Mr Elton shows Emma a poem that he claims a friend of his wrote for a girl ''he'' was in love with. Emma isn't fooled (at least not about who really wrote it, although she is wrong about who it was written ''for'').

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: ** For all her faults, Emma has more than once shown kindness and sympathy to people under her on the social tree, as well as feeling guilty for her mistreatment of Miss Bates. The biggest proof is her routine visits with the poor, giving not just food/money but time and attention to them, trying to entertain the children, etc. She also deserves credit for being so patient and considerate to her father. He's a good person, but he can, inadvertently, be very trying. ** John Knightley can be snarky and short-tempered with Mr Woodhouse, but, well, Mr Woodhouse IS annoying and John's very obvious love for his family (and his big-brotherly care of Emma) makes up for a lot.
