Let's check we understand
Figurative language is a kind of descriptive language that doesn’t mean what it says literally. For example:
Similes describe something by comparing it to something else, using like or as. For example, the statue was cold as ice.
Metaphors are a word or a phrase used to describe something as if it were something else. For example, he was a tornado.
Personification is describing objects as if they are people. For example, the statue stared out across the water.
Hyperbole is used to exaggerate, intensify and emphasise different ideas. For example, the pizza was hotter than the sun.
Alliteration is repeating the sounds at the start of words. For example, the solid, silver statue.
Onomatopoeia is words that sound like what they describe. For example, plop or bang.
Imagery is a way of painting an image in the reader’s mind by writing about the five senses (smell, taste, touch, sight, and sound). You can use figurative language to describe each of these senses.
