2 Literal Language The text uses the exact meaning of a word or phrase.

3 Literal Language Ex. Little Johnny thundered down the path, like a jet. (He really didn’t, he just ran fast.) Little Johnny ran as fast as he could down the path. (He really did run as fast as he could.)

4 Literal Language “One of the best ways to ensure you’re in top form is to follow the Food Guide Pyramid.” (paragraph 4) This is meant literally because the Food Guide Pyramid shows you what to eat and the right servings to eat of the food.

5 Literal Language Literal language is fully factual. The writer intends something to be understood as it is written, or spoken. Literal language, as opposed to figurative language, means to speak and say exactly what is meant. There are no similes or ironic devices in which you are saying something different than what you mean. This literary term is important because, you want people to literally get what you’re saying.
