By Colby Elmore
A simile is a comparison of two words using LIKE or AS. Example 1: Looking at the whales face was like hanging upside down from a set of monkey bars. Example 2: His temper was as explosive as a volcano.
Explanation: The whales face was very weird to look at.
Explanation: He had a short, but very hot temper.
A metaphor is a comparison of two words WITHOUT using LIKE or AS. Example 1: -Chuck Norris’s round house kick to the face is a pile of needles pinning your face to the ground. Example 2: -The train was an angry animal roaring down the tracks.
Explanation: A Chuck Norris roundhouse kick to the face is very painful.
Explanation: The train moved very LOUD and FAST.
A sentence when every word sounds alike. Example 1: -Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. Example 2: -Sarah Cynthia Silvia Stout would not take the garbage out.
Explanation: SEE!! ALL THE WORDS SOUND ALIKE!! P.S. say that as fast as you can without screwing it up.
Well… same explanation as slide 9 right?
Words that are like BANG! BOOM! POW! SMACK! You know, your basic comic book dictionary. Example 1: The bomb exploded with a BANG! Example 2: He said the dirtiest word to his mother and SMACK! Went her hand across his face.
Explanation: The bomb was very loud. Conscience: “Should I move out of the way?”
He was punished physically for the dirty word he said. NO PICTURE
Giving human characteristics to non human objects. Example 1: -The waves of the sea were dancing as the wind was carrying it’s tide. Example 2: -The forest was calling my name.
Explanation: The Sea can’t really dance and the wind can’t really carry it’s tides.
Explanation: The forest can’t really call your name. “HELLO! Nice to see you again!”
A figure of speech used for exaggeration, emphases or effect. Example 1: -“SQUIDWARD! SQUIDWARD! WERE OUT OF NAPKINS!” Example 2: -“There's a monster in my closet.”
Explanation: A low amount of napkins is not that big a deal.
Explanation: The boy is exaggerating from that scary movie he saw the other night.
