Transcript of Hyperboles
took TONS of work.
Da Heck is a Hyperbole?
"No Mom, I'VE TOLD YOU A MILLION TIMES,
I am not done my English work yet."
It is a literary device. It is an exaggeration about something, usually used to EMPHASIZE it.
I didn't really tell her that a MILLION times,
but by using this hyperbole,
you can recognize the annoyance in my phrase,
Hyperboles show personality and they get the point across.
It's common knowledge that a monotonous voice is pretty lame. Everyone has a different style that they talk in, and we all seek humor to some extent.
In fact, if you haven't noticed, advertisements use hyperboles all the time, because fun and interesting advertisements produce results.
When every day's a drag, some well placed exaggeration can brighten anyone's day and catch their attention.
That's no different from any other types of writing. Smart authors and writers can identify appropriate times to use them to keep their writing flavorful and enticing.
Or to show FRUSTRATION.

So please don't fail me!
Or to be COMEDIC.
