1 Figurative Language Terms Packet!

2 POETRY One of three major types of literature No single, defining characteristic Musical and emotional language 3 major types: lyric, narrative, concrete Divided into lines and stanzas

3 FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE Writing or speech not meant to be taken literally Used to state ideas in creative, imaginative ways

4 ALLITERATION Repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of words

5 ALLITERATION EXAMPLES! Thursdays are terrific! The cat curls up on the couch. Luckily, I love to eat Lucky Charms. Devour the delicious donuts. Miss Smith eats many marshmallows on Mondays. I baked brownies for Ben’s birthday.

6 FREE VERSE Lines vary in length No real pattern or regular rhythm

7 LYRIC POEM Highly musical verse Expresses observations and feelings of a single speaker

8 HYPERBOLE An exaggeration for emphasis The situation is at least a million billion times worse than I imagined.

9 HYPERBOLE EXAMPLES! I'm so hungry I could eat a cow. His head is so big he won't fit through the door. (Meaning: He's full of himself.) I ate 100 pieces of pizza last night.

10 Let’s listen to a song that has a LOT of figurative language in it! _w _w

11 IMAGE/IMAGERY Word or phrase that appeals to one or more of the five senses Used to describe the five senses

12 IMAGE/IMAGERY EXAMPLES! The sun was shining brightly in the sky. (also has alliteration) The rain glistened on the sidewalk. Her sequin dress sparkled as the cameras flashed to take her picture.

13 This means that the author did a good job using images and imagery!

14 METAPHOR Points out similarities between two unlike objects Figure of speech where one thing is described as though it is something else Doesn't use like or as

15 METAPHOR EXAMPLES! "Language is a road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going." - Rita Mae Brown "Love is a battlefield." -Pat Benetar Time is a thief. My room is a black hole.

16 ONOMATOPOEIA Using words that imitate sounds (words that sound like the meaning of the word)

17 ONOMATOPOEIA Examples! Buzz Crack Fizz Pop BAZINGA!

18 PERSONIFICATION Giving humanlike qualities to a non-human subject

19 PERSONIFICATION EXAMPLES! When pigs fly… My computer hates me. The camera loves me. The rug tripped me. The drawer bit my finger.

20 REFRAIN Regularly repeated line or group of lines in a poem or song

21 REFRAIN EXAMPLES! From “I knew you were trouble” by Taylor Swift 'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in So shame on me now Flew me to places I'd never been 'Til you put me down, oh I knew you were trouble when you walked in So shame on me now Flew me to places I'd never been Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

22 REPETITION Repeating (more than once) any element of language Repeated sound patterns: rhyme, alliteration, rhythm Refrain = repeated line, lines or group of lines

23 REPETITION EXAMPLES! "And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep." From: Robert Frost, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” "...Nevermore... Nevermore" from "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe.

24 RHYME Repetition of sounds at the ends of words

25 RHYME EXAMPLES! I love to eat donuts all the time. I don’t share because they’re all mine. Dunkin’ Donuts munchkins taste the best. Those donuts are better than all the rest! Cat, bat, hat, matsing, bring, fling, ka-ching! Mall, fall, ball, crawlkey, flee, pea, knee Top, mop, flopdove, love, above

26 RHYME SCHEME Regular pattern of rhyming words in a poem Rhyme scheme is marked with lowercase letters

27 RHYME SCHEME EXAMPLE! I love to eat donuts all the time. I don’t share because they’re all mine. Dunkin’ Donuts munchkins taste the best. Those donuts are better than all the rest! I dream about donuts every night. If I can’t have a donut, I’ll put up a fight! Donuts taste so incredibly great. I would love to have donuts on a date. If my date took my delicious treat, I’d chase him down the street!

28 RHYTHM Pattern of beats (or stresses/emphasis) in written or spoken language

29 SIMILE A comparison between two unlike ideas using LIKE or AS.

30 SIMILE EXAMPLES! My love is like a red, red rose. "It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog." -The Beatles His skin was as cold as ice. "I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper." -Demi Lovato

31 STANZA Formal division of lines in a poem Functions like a paragraph does in writing Each stanza states and develops a single main idea

32 STANZA EXAMPLES! "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)" - By: Green Day Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go So make the best of this test, and don't ask why It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right. I hope you had the time of your life. So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial For what it's worth it was worth all the while It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right. I hope you had the time of your life. It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right. I hope you had the time of your life. It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right. I hope you had the time of your life.

33 STANZA EXAMPLES! I remember when we broke up the first time Saying this is it, I've had enough, 'cause like We haven't seen each other in a month When you, said you, needed space, what? Then you come around again and say Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change Trust me, remember how that lasted for a day I say, I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you Oooh we called it off again last night But Oooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you We are never ever ever getting back together We are never ever ever getting back together You go talk to your friends talk To my friends talk to me But we are never ever ever ever getting back together. Like ever... I'm really gonna miss you picking fights And me, falling for a screaming that I'm right And you, will hide away and find your piece of mind with some indie record that's much cooler than mine Oooh you called me up again tonight But Oooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you We are never ever ever getting back together We are never ever ever getting back together You go talk to your friends talk To my friends talk to me But we are never ever ever ever getting back together I used to think, that we, were forever ever ever And I used to say never say never Huh, he calls me up and he's like, I still love you And I'm like, I'm just, I mean this is exhausting, you know We are never getting back together, like ever We are never ever ever getting back together We are never ever ever getting back together You go talk to your friends talk To my friends talk to me But we are never ever ever ever getting back together We, oooh, oooh, not back together, we Oh, getting back together You go talk to your friends talk And my friends talk to me But we are never ever ever ever getting back together Taylor Swift – “We are never getting back together”

34 SYMBOL Something that stands for something else (represents something else)

35 SYMBOL EXAMPLES! A clock could represent time passing you by. A crossroads could represent a big decision you need to make. American flag - stands for freedom
