Denotation is the definition of a word according to a dictionary. Connotation is the definition of a word depending on the context in which it is being used. Such as, the word "cool". Cool means something that is somewhere between hot and cold. But in the sentence' "Man that is cool!", it means that something is nice or advantageous. This would be the connotative meaning.
