Trope

An idiom of storytelling, frequently used in a derogatory sense. In the context of genre, tropes form a contract between the writer and the reader. "It's not how big your trope is, but how you use it." (Source: Fritz Freiheit)
A literary trope (from Greek τροπή - tropē, "a turn, a change" and that from τρέπω - trepō, "to turn, to direct, to alter, to change") is a common pattern, theme, motif in literature, or a term often used to denote figures of speech in which words are used in a sense different from their literal meaning. -- (Source: Trope (literature) at Wikipedia )
Tropes Are Tools at TvTropes
A figure of speech, usually used to describe overworked images, literary or dramatic conventions, or stale ideas borrowed from other writers. See Used Furniture. (Original source: http://www.sfwa.org/2009/06/being-a-glossary-of-terms-useful-in-critiquing-science-fiction/ ) (e)

From Wikipedia

See Trope (literature) at Wikipedia A literary trope (from Greek τροπή - tropē, "a turn, a change" and that from τρέπω - trepō, "to turn, to direct, to alter, to change") is a common pattern, theme, motif in literature, or a term often used to denote figures of speech in which words are used in a sense different from their literal meaning.

Rhetoricians have closely analyzed the bewlidering array of "turns and twists" used in poetry and literature and have provided a sometimes confusing list of labels for these poetic devices:

Various scholars throughout history, begining with Quintilian, Ramus, and Vico, have argued that a great deal of our conceptualization of experience, even the foundation of human consciousness, is based figurative schemes of thought which include not only metaphor, but also metonymy, synecdoche and irony. Tropes do not merely provide a way for us to talk about how we think, reason, and imagine, they are also consitutive of our experience[1].
