Simile is a figure of speech which means an implied comparison made between two objects of different kinds which have however at least one point in common.

For instance,

  • My love is like a melody

  • You are going crzy like an insane person

  • He tiptoed inside like a wolf

  • Her replies are as witty as a fox.

Metaphor is an implied simile. They are different from simile because like similes they do not state that one thing is like another or acts as another but takes that for granted and proceeds as if the two things were one.

For instance,

  • The camel is the ship of the desert

  • He was a lion in the battlefield

  • She was a nightingale in the concert.

Personification is a figure of speech where inanimate objects and abstract notions are spoken of as having life and intelligence.

For instance,

  • The stars danced in the moonlit sky

  • Fear knocked on the door.

  • Faith always answers to prayers.

  •  

Alliteration is a term that describes a literary stylistic device. It occurs when a series of words in a row (or close to a row) have the same first consonant sound. For example, “Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers” or “She sells sea-shells down by the sea-short” are both alliterative phrases. In the former, all the words start with the “p” sound, while in the later, the “s’s” take precedence. Aside from tongue twisters, alliteration is also used in poems, song lyrics, and even store or brand names.

Observe the following sentences to understand the concept better:

  • Kimmy’s kid’s kept kiting
  • Lizie’s lizard likes leaping leopards

Personification is a figure of speech where inanimate objects and abstract notions are spoken of as having life and intelligence.

For instance,

  • The stars danced in the moonlit sky
  • Fear knocked on the door.

Irony - It is the use of words to convey the opposite of their literal meaning; a statement or situation where the meaning is contradicted by the appearance or presentation of the idea.

Allegory - It is usually 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. It dates back to the classical ages when allegories had biblical references. They might also act as a political satire.

Onomatopoeia - IT is a figure of speech that represents the sound associated with an object. For example, 'babble', 'hiss', 'murmur' etc.

Oxymoron: It is the figure of speech which produces a self-contradictory effect. In this, two contradictory qualities are predicted at once of the same thing. Instances of the same are: “cruel kindness”, “dry water”, “so falsely true”, etc. Hope the explanation helped you understand the concept of oxymoron.

Rhyme scheme is an arrangement or pattern of rhymes used in a poem or song. It is indicated using letters to show which line rhymes with which. For example, in the following poem, the rhyme scheme is abab.

 

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!

This is because the last words of line 1 and line 3 rhyme with each other and the last words of line 2 and line 4 rhyme with each other.

 

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, - a
How I wonder what you are! - b
Up above the world so high, - a
Like a diamond in the sky! - b

 

Thus, here the rhyme scheme is abab

 

plzz thumbs up!!!
