2 Figurative VS Literal Meaning Figurative meaning is putting a little emphasis or exaggerationLiteral meaning is when you say something that really means what you say
3 Simile A simile is the comparison of two things using “like” or “as.” For example, If say “the bed was as big as a house” I would be exaggerating the fact that the bed is big.
4 MetaphorA metaphor is a comparison of two things that doesn’t use like or as.For example, if I say “ My ball is basically the sun because of how big it is.”I’m still comparing the size of two objects but without using like or as
5 AlliterationAn alliteration is when the beginning consonant sound repeats in a phrase or sentenceFor example “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers” the beginning consonant sound that is repetitive is the letter P.
6 PersonificationPersonification is when you give human-like qualities to non-animate objectsFor example if I said “these boots are reaching out to me” I’m exaggerating the fact that I really wanted the boots.
7 Hyperbole A hyperbole is an exaggeration of a statement. For example if I said “I told you a zillion times already” that would be an exaggeration because you can’t actually count to a zillion.
8 OnomatopoeiaAn onomatopoeia is when you mimic the sound of an object/organismFor example if I said “Can you hear the buzzing of the bee?” that’s an onomatopoeia because the word BUZZ is used to describe the sound of the bee
9 ImageryImagery is when you give a full description of what you can sense with your five senses?For example “I could smell the sweet scent of the roll as I bit into it’s golden goodness of whole grain” that would be an example because I am describing what I’m tasting and smelling at the same time.
