Transcript of Figurative Language

Figurative Language LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS-THE BEATLES ALLITERATION REPETITION OF A CONSONANT SOUND AT THE BEGINNING OF TWO OR MORE WORDS Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes. Examples Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties.
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes. IN PERSONIFICATION GIVING HUMAN QUALITIES TO AN OBJECT OR IDEA Example Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone Newspaper taxis cannot actually wait for you and take you away, but the person driving it can. This is giving the newspaper taxi human qualities of being able to appear willingly and wait. METAPHOR A COMPARISON THAT DOES not USE like OR as. Example

A girl with kaleidoscope eyes. They song compares her eyes with kaleidoscopes, not that they are. It also does not use the word LIKE or AS, making it a metaphor. IDIOM PHRASE MADE UP OF WORDS WHICH CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD BY THEIR LITERAL OR ORDINARY MEANING. Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone. Example This is and idiom because your head is not literally in the clouds. It means that your mind is elsewhere and you are not thinking, daydreaming. IMAGERY A DESCRIPTION USING WORDS THAT APPEAL TO THE FIVE SENSES (TOUCH, SIGHT, SOUND, TASTE, SMELL) Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain,

Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties.
