Transcript of Review of Figurative Language

Alliteration

the repetition of the same consonant sound at the beginning of a group of consecutive or closely connected words
Onomatopoeia

a word that imitates the sound
it is describing
Figurative Language
Imagery

words that create a mental picture by appealing to the five senses - what you see, smell, taste, hear, and feel
Personification
Examples:

• The flowers begged for water.
• The wind whispered softly in the night.
• Lightning danced across the sky.
• The sun played hide and seek with the clouds.
Examples of Alliteration in Tongue Twisters:

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Did Peter Piper pick a peck of pickled peppers?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Betty Botter bought some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter's bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
It will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter -
That would make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter,
Better than her bitter butter,
And she baked it in her batter,
And the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.
Even Batman uses onomatopoeia
Let's try using figurative language together :-)
Use alliteration to fill in the blank
Use imagery to describe colors
How does blue:
feel?
sound?
taste?
smell?
look?
How does yellow:
feel?
sound?
taste?
smell?
look?
How does red:
feel?
sound?
taste?
smell?
look?
Use words that start with the letter "B":

The ________ bear ate ________ while ________ in the_______.
Use words that start with the letter "S":

_______ Sally saw _________ on the __________.
Use words that start with the letter "D":

The ________ dog ______ for ________ in the ______.
How could we use personification to describe nature?
Hint: The wind whispered through the trees.
Use onompatopoeia to describe each action or thing
Whenever you describe something by comparing it with something else, you are using figurative language. Figurative language is language that goes beyond the literal meaning of words in order to give the reader a different perspective about an idea or subject.
Now it's your turn to use figurative language on your own
Figurative Language Assignment: Creating an Advertisement Using Figurative Language

Task: Using your understanding and knowledge of figurative language, you are going to create a product (or use an already existing product) and an advertisement that incorporates at least two figures of speech.

Directions:
1. Decide on a product for which you want to develop an advertisement. Some suggestions might be: sneakers, a soft drink, candy, cereal, clothing brand, etc. Consider that the audience is someone your own age.
2. Create a name for your product, or use an already existing product.
3. Design a slogan, or “catchy phrase”.
4. Incorporate figurative language into the product name, slogan, or overall ad.
5. On the back of the poster, identify what types of figures of speech are used in your advertisement, including their definitions.
Figurative Language is used everyday:

TV shows & commercials
Movies
Magazine Advertisements
Music
Poems
How we talk to each other
Objective: Determine the meaning of figurative language

Objective: I will be able to identify, define and use figurative language in prose (ordinary/everyday language) and poetry
Simile
making a comparison between two unlike things
using like or as
Metaphor
A metaphor is a figure of speech that says that one thing is a different thing.
He's a pig when it comes to food.
Her head was a spinning top in pain after she was hit.
"All the world's a stage."
-William Shakespeare
"When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade."
"Life's mistakes are like water under the bridge."
Personification
Allusion
a reference to another well-known
person, place, event, or work of art/literature
Example (from a current song):
I was June and you were my Johnny Cash
Never one without the other we made a pact
Sometimes when I miss you
I put those records on (Whoa)
Hyperbole
An exaggeration!!
Some folks are born made to wave the flag
Ooh, they're red, white, and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief"
They point the cannon right at you

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no senator's son
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, dont they help themselves
But when the tax man comes to the door,
Lord the house looks like a rummage sale
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no millionaire's son
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
Ooh, they send you down to war
And when you ask them, "How much should we give?"
They only answer "More! More! More!"

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no military son
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one
(10)“A little dab’ll do ya.”
(9) “It’s the real thing.”
(8) “Winston tastes good like a cigarette should.”
(7) “Double your pleasure, double your fun.”

(5) “See the USA in your Chevrolet.”
Top 10 Jingles of the Century (Advertising Age magazine)
(4) “Mmm good!”
(3) “Pepsi-Cola hits the spot.”
(2) “Be all that you can be.”
(1) “You deserve a break today.”
"She was so hungry, she said she could eat an entire house." -or-
"I will love you forever."

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side.
I wait for you.
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you.

Through the storm, we reach the shore
You gave it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you.
I can't live with or without you.

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.
My hands are tied, my body bruised
She´s got me with nothing to win
And nothing left to lose.

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you.

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
With or without you.
I got sunshine,
On a cloudy day.
When it's cold outside,
I've got the month of may. Well
I guess you'd say,
What can make me feel this way?

[Chorus]
My girl, my girl, my girl.
Talkin' 'bout my girl.
My girl!

I've got so much honey,
The bees envy me.
I've got a sweeter song,
Than the birds in the trees.
Well, I guess you'd say,
What can make me feel this way?
[Chorus]
Ooo-ooo, hoo-ooo.

I don't need no money,
Fortune or fame.
I got all the riches baby,
One man can claim.
Well, I guess you'd say,
What can make me feel this way?


[Chorus]

I got sunshine on a cloudy day
I've even got the month of may with my girl.
