Figurative Language (Stereo Hearts) Gym Class Heroes
Transcript of Figurative Language (Stereo Hearts) Gym Class Heroes
Enjoyed!! A simile uses the words "like" or "as" to
compare one object or idea with another to
suggest they are alike. A few others are... "Just keep me stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune."
"You never know we come and go like on the interstate." Figurative Language Metaphor The metaphor states a fact or draws a verbal picture by the use of comparison. A simile would say you are like something; a metaphor is more positive-it says you are something. Personification A figure of speech in which human characteristics are given to an animal or
an object. Alliteration The repetition of the same initial letter, sound or group of sounds in a series of words. Alliterations include tongue twisters Onomatopoeia The use of a word to describe or imitate a natural sound or the sound made by an object or an action. Hyperbole An exaggeration that is so dramatic that no one would believe the statement is true. Tall tales are examples of hyperbole. Idioms An idiom is a word or phrase which means something different from what it says. Idioms are common phrases or terms whose meaning is not real, but can be understood by their popular use. Metaphors "My heart's a stereo."
"Make me your radio."
"If I was just another dusty record on the shelf."
"It's just the last girl that played me left a couple cracks."
"'Cause holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts."
"And know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you."
"If I was an old-school fifty pound boom box." Personifications "And turn me up when you feel low."
"Would you blow me off and play me like everybody else?"
"Would you turn my volume up in front of the cops."
"When you have to purchase mad D batteries."
"Thought love was dead, but now you're changing my mind." Alliterations "I used to, used to, used to, used to."
"Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh"
"Oh oh oh oh"
