Metaphors

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’
