Recognizing Figurative Language The opposite of literal language is figurative language. Figurative language is language that means more than what it says on the surface. It usually gives us a feeling about its subject. Poets use figurative language almost as frequently as literal language. When you read poetry, you must be conscious of the difference. Otherwise, a poem may make no sense at all.
Recognizing Literal Language “I’ve eaten so much I feel as if I could literally burst!” In this case, the person is NOT using the word literally in its true meaning. Literal means "exact" or "not exaggerated." By pretending that the statement is not exaggerated, the person stresses how much he has eaten. Literal language is language that means exactly what is said. Most of the time, we use literal language.
What is figurative language? Whenever you describe something by comparing it with something else, you are using figurative language.
Types of Figurative Language Simile Metaphor Alliteration Personification Onomatopoeia Hyperbole Idioms
Simile A figure of speech which involves a direct comparison between two unlike things, usually with the words like or as. Example: The muscles on his brawny arms are strong as iron bands.
Metaphor A figure of speech which involves an implied comparison between two relatively unlike things using a form of be. The comparison is not announced by like or as. Example: The road was a ribbon wrapped through the dessert.
Alliteration Repeated consonant sounds occurring at the beginning of words or within words. Example: She was wide-eyed and wondering while she waited for Walter to waken.
Personification A figure of speech which gives the qualities of a person to an animal, an object, or an idea. Example: “The wind yells while I walk in the woods." The wind cannot yell. Only a living thing can yell.
Onomatopoeia The use of words that mimic sounds. Example: The firecracker made a loud ka-boom!
Hyperbole An exaggerated statement used to heighten effect. It is not used to mislead the reader, but to emphasize a point. Example: She’s said so on several million occasions.
Idioms An idiom or idiomatic expression refers to a construction or expression in one language that cannot be matched or directly translated word- for-word in another language. Example: "She has a bee in her bonnet," meaning "she is obsessed," cannot be literally translated into another language word for word.
Literal Vs. Figurative Literal vs. Figurative- You will get an example of Figurative language. Analyze it for both literal and figurative meanings. Then draw a picture that illustrates the FIGURATIVE meaning.
Figurative Language Examples For Illustrations: Ellie’s cell phone dropped into the toilet like a falling star. “Food?” Chris inquired, popping out of his seat like a toaster strudel. Grandpa lounged on the raft in the middle of the pool like an old battleship. If seen from above the factory, the workers would have looked like clock parts. Toby manipulated the people in his life as though they were chess pieces. Kathy arrived at the grocery store with an army of children. Waves of spam s inundated his inbox. Her eyes were fireflies. Nothing can bother him. I can smell pizza from a mile a way. I went home and made the biggest sandwich of all time. The cactus saluted any visitor brave enough to travel the scorched land. The world does not care to hear your sad stories.
