Transcript of Figures of Speech!

Personification, Fireflies
The Figures of Speech!
By: Anna T
What Kinds of Figures of speech?
I found a simile, onomatopoeia, alliteration, personification and pun. The simile was found in a movie called, Finding Nemo. The onomatopoeia was found in a book called, The Hunger Games. The alliteration was found in a tongue twister. The personification was found in a song called, Fireflies. Finally, the pun was found on the internet. Figures of speech are found anywhere!
What is figure of speech?
I'm doing different figures of speeches and representing them by using movies, songs, books, and tongue twisters.
Onomatopoeia, The Hunger Games book
Alliteration, Tongue Twister
Simile, Finding Nemo
"I'm a fish with a nose like a sword"
In the movie, Finding Nemo, I found a simile. Its when you compare something by using "like" or "as". In this case they are comparing a fish with a nose like a sword.
Snap! The sound of a breaking branch wakes me. How long have I been asleep? Four hours? Five? The tip of my nose is icy cold. Snap! Snap! What’s going on? This is not the sound of a branch under someone’s foot, but the sharp crack of one coming from a tree. Snap! Snap!
In the Hunger Games book, on page 158, paragraph 2, line 1, 4 and 7, there is a onomatopoeia! Which is when there is a word that we would hear in real life. In the book i found the word "snap!"
The letter was "c" and "g"
I used a tongue twister for the alliteration, it's when you have a sentence/phrase that has a sounds or letter that sounds the same in almost each word. In the tongue twister the sounds that were repeated are, "cu" and "u". The letters were "c" and "g". Like in cook, cookies and good.
How many cookies could a good cook cook If a good cook could cook cookies? A good cook could cook as much cookies as a good cook who could cook cookies.

"Cause I'd get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightening bugs, as they try to teach me how to dance"
In the song Fireflies, I found a personification it is when a non-human is given a human quality. In the lyrics the fireflies are given a human quality, which is hugging and dancing.
"You know what's not right? Left."
A pun is like making a joke that is exploiting the different possible meanings of a word. This is a pun because it's talking about how something's not right but then it's actually talking about the left side.
Figures of speech is a language used in a non-literal way. It is also used in many ways, people use it for comparison, emphasis, etc...
