~Figurative Language~

Simile- Kynedy Rosalez:)


A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two things through some connective word usually being "like" "as" "than".

Example: "Of course he wasn't a crazy crazy like old Miss Leedie,who was in love with President Wilson and wrote him a letter every day,but was a nice crazy,like someone you meet in your dreams." ( The scarlet ibis)

A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes a subject by asserting that it is,on some point of comparison,the same as another otherwise unrelated object.

Example:"They named him William Armstrong,which was like trying a big tail on a small kit." (The scarlet ibis)

A personification is when you assign the qualities of a person to something that isn't human or, in some cases, to something that isn't even alive.

Example:"The last graveyard flowers were blooming,and their smell drifted across the cotton field and through every room of our house,speaking softly the names of our dead." ( The scarlet ibis)
