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.
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.
