Figurative language

Figurative Language

  • The opposite of literal language is figurative language.

  • Figurative language is language that means more than what it says on the surface.

  • Poets often use figurative language.

  • Whenever you describe something by comparing it with something else, you are using figurative language.


Types of figurative language

Types of Figurative Language

  • Imagery

  • Alliteration

  • Personification

  • Onomatopoeia

  • Hyperbole

  • Idioms

  • Simile

  • Metaphor


Alliteration

Alliteration

  • Repeated consonant sounds occurring at the beginning of words or within words.

    Example:

    1) She was wide-eyed and wondering while

    she waited for Walter to waken.

    2) Sally sold seashells by the seashore.


Hyperbole

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.


Simile

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

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.

    Examples:

  • Bob’s a __________ in the morning, at least until he has his coffee.

  • Life’s a _______________; enjoy the ride!


Idiom
