What is the difference between personification, metaphor, similie and othe figures of speech....????
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.
Please follow the link given below:
A metaphor is saying something is something else.
eg. She has a heart of stone.
Personification is giving a human quality to a non human thing.
eg. The trees sighed in the wind.
A similie is saying something is like something else.
eg. She was like a sly fox, the way she slinked around.
Hope this helps:)
