It Figures ! Fun Figures Of Speech
Similes, Metaphors, Onomatopoeia, Alliteration
This book talks about about the different languages of speech. It talks about Similes, Metaphors, Onomatopoeia, Alliteration, Hyperbole, and Personification. Similes are lively comparisons used to enrich descriptions of people, places, things, emotions, and actions. A simile links 2 different elements by comparing one with the other in a way that shows how they are actually alike. A metaphor describes a person, place, thing, feeling, idea, or action. A metaphor is more direct than a simile. The figure of speech that means to form words that sound like sounds is onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is Greek for "to make up names". Alliteration is when you put together two or more words that begin with the same sound is called alliteration. Hyperbole comes the Greek name "excess" or anything that goes beyond normal. Personification When you use personification your words create very different definite pictures by suggesting that things look or act like people.
