Expert teachers and my frinds plz tell me how we can know the simile ,metaphor, alliteration, personification.

similie is a comparison using "like or as"  for eg. she is as white as milk

metaphor is a comparison without the use of as or like 

alliteration is repition of similar sounds for eg. furrow followed free

personification is attributing human qualities to non living things for ex the storm was very powerful

hope it helps :)

Simile(expresses a resemblance between things of different kinds usually formed with 'like' or 'as')

Example:like a three years' child.

Metaphor(refer to something that it does not literally denote in order to suggest a similarity)

Example:"Was tyrannous and strong"

Personification(representing an abstract quality or idea as a person or creature)

Example:Out of the sea came he!

Repetition(the repeated use of the same word or word pattern)

Example:"alone, alone, all all alone..."

Oxymoron(putting together of two contradictory ideas)

Example: "disagreeably pleasant laughter"

Onomatopoeia(words whose sound resemble the sound they express)

Example:"pop", "hiss", etc.

Allegory(the representation of abstract ideas or principles by characters, figures, or events in narrative, dramatic, or pictorial form. It is usually a tale with a moral.)

Irony( the real meaning is exactly opposite to what is being said. )

Example:These sweet little mountains fascinate me.

Rhythm/ Rhyme

This waas the question asked by me.......
