Ill try my best 

- octet - a stanza with 8 lines lol

- cliche - overused term/idea 

- imperative - an order or command

- juxtapositioning - contrasting two things 

- Iambic meter - a way of poetry with an unstressed then stressed syllable..thats v.general but all i remember lol

and from google:

Lexical field is the way of organizing related words and expressions into a system which shows their relationship to one another. For example, father, mother, uncle, and aunt,... belong to one lexical field. 

Hope this helped :)

If you're not unsure about it then it's best you don't use it because you don't want to confuse yourself at this stage.
