A metaphor is a figure of speech that is used to make a comparison between two things that aren’t alike but do have something in common. Unlike a simile, where two things are compared directly using like or as, a metaphor’s comparison is more indirect by stating something is something else. A metaphor is very expressive; it is not meant to be taken literally.You may have to work a little to find the meaning in a metaphor.
Here is some examples
- The snow is a white blanket.
- The hospital was a refrigerator.
- The classroom was a zoo.
- America is a melting pot.
- Her lovely voice was music to his ears.
- Life is a rollercoaster.
- The alligator’s teeth are white dagger.
Every two days we will put up a Word, and you will need to make a sentence
out of it in the comment section.
For example if we put up snow you could say ‘The snow is a white blanket’
