1 Figurative Language Review

2 What is personification?
Personification is giving human characteristics to everyday ideas, objects, and animals. Examples: The sun peeked happily from behind a cloud. The trees danced back and forth in the wind. The car happily squealed down the highway. It was time to go home, but the bell refused to ring. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.L.5 - Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.

3 What is alliteration? Alliteration occurs when a series of words in a row (or close to a row) have the same first consonant sound. Examples She sells sea-shells down by the sea-shore Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers Aside from tongue twisters, alliteration is also used in poems, song lyrics, and even store or brand names.

4 We use these all the time without even realizing it!
What is hyperbole? A hyperbole is an extreme and oftentimes ridiculous exaggeration Examples: I stood in line for an eternity just to get the Xbox One. She thinks of her crush at least a million times a day. I’m so hungry I could eat a horse. We use these all the time without even realizing it!

5 What is a simile? A simile is a comparison of two unlike things using like or as. Examples: The puppy wiggled like a worm. His temper was as explosive as a volcano.

6 What is a metaphor? The comparison of one thing to another without the use of like or as. Examples: She has a heart of gold. There was a rainbow of flavors in the pizza tonight. Young love is a vibrant red rose, newly plucked. The moon is a giant flashlight.

7 What is onomatopoeia? A word that imitates the sound that it represents. Examples: The cash register popped open with a heart warming ca-ching. The bird’s chirp filled the empty night air. Her heels clacked on the hardwood floor.
