Friends answer fast please.
Give me a proper definition of metaphor and simile.

?simile is where two things are directly compared because they share a common feature. The word AS or LIKE is used to compare the two words. Eg. As cold AS a dog's nose

A metaphor also compares two things, but it does so more directly WITHOUT using as or like. Eg. The shop was a little gold-mine.

Task One

Copy these sentences into your book. At the end of the sentence, write in brackets whether the sentence is an example of a metaphor or simile.

Eg. The clouds were fluffy like cotton wool. (SIMILE)

As slippery as an eel.Arnie was a man-mountain.He was a lion in battle.She is as pretty as a picture.The striker was a goal machine.The torch lit up the room as if the sun had risen early.The moon was a misty shadow.My friend has a face like a bag of spanners.

Task Two

Now you are going to make up similes of your own by copying and finishing these sentences.

For example:

As good as?gold

As heavy asAs cold asAs hard asShe had skin like aAs cool asAs quick asHe was slow like aSlippery like a

A metaphor is a figure of speech in which two objects or people are compared to each other on the basis of some common characteristics. The comparison is so implicit that to the reader it may look like one thing has become the other. Example- i was the early bird and i won the prize. Whereas a simile is an expression used to compare two different things. Simile draws resemblance using the words 'like' and 'as'. For example,as light as feather.

A metaphor is a figure of speech that refers, for rhetorical effect, to one thing by mentioning another thing. It may provide clarity or identify hidden similarities between two ideas. Antithesis, hyperbole, metonymy and simile are all types of metaphor. One of the most commonly cited examples of a metaphor in English literature is the "All the world's a stage" monologue from As You Like It

A simile  is a figure of speech that directly compares two things. Although similes and metaphors are similar, similes explicitly use connecting words (such as like, as, so, than, or various verbs such as resemble), though these specific words are not always necessary. While similes are mainly used in forms of poetry that compare the inanimate and the living, there are also terms in which similes and personifications are used for humorous purposes and comparison.

hope this helps.

METHAPHOR- A comparison between two things which are essentially dissimilar. The comparision is implied rather than directly started.
eg- Life is a roller coaster.
     He is a shinning star.
