2Figurative VS Literal Meaning Figurative meaning is putting a little emphasis or exaggerationLiteral meaning is when you say something that really means what you say
3Simile 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.
4MetaphorA 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
5AlliterationAn 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.
6PersonificationPersonification 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.
7Hyperbole 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.
8OnomatopoeiaAn 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
9ImageryImagery 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.
