2 Figurative Language BY AJ DALEY MRS. J. JOHNSON LANGUAGE ARTS 7 TH PERIOD

3 Figurative VS Literal Meaning  Figurative meaning is putting a little emphasis or exaggeration  Literal meaning is when you say something that really means what you say

4 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.

5 Metaphor  A 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

6 Alliteration  An alliteration is when the beginning consonant sound repeats in a phrase or sentence  For example “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers” the beginning consonant sound that is repetitive is the letter P.

7 Personification  Personification is when you give human-like qualities to non-animate objects  For example if I said “these boots are reaching out to me” I’m exaggerating the fact that I really wanted the boots.

8 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.

9 Onomatopoeia  An onomatopoeia is when you mimic the sound of an object/organism  For 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

10 Imagery  Imagery 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.
