Transcript of Figures of Speech

A very cool way to show the world what you have learned...about figures of speech.
Click on the arrow below to go to the next frame. Welcome to Prezi Similies Metaphors Onomatopoeias Personification Hypberboles Now, it's your turn Created by:

Lisa O'Brien Comparisons using "like" or "as" or "resemble"

It was light as a feather Direct comparisons such as, "I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails." Jimm Dean or "sahphire eyes" or "this is a sinking ship". Funny sounding words that convey meaning by their sounds: "cockle-doodle-doo!", "bang, went the side of the boat into the iceberg". Exaggerations, like the coolest thing ever.
Wow! Did you see that? When an unhuman entity takes on human qualities:

"the wind whispered it's sad tale" or the giant Michelin tire man in the advertisement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rzu5UK6fVm8 This was just a brief introduction to

Remember, your final assignment will
be to create a Prezi of the Figure of
Speech terms and to create a ship log
using them.
