By: Shannon, Kim, Sarah, Amanda, Natalie, and Joel • Language that appeals to the senses. Descriptions of people or objects stated in terms of our senses. • A comparison of two objects using like or as. • Example: Her eyes were as blue as the sea. • Comparing two relatively unlike things, saying one is the other. • Example: The road was a ribbon of moonlight. • Giving an object human qualities. • Example: The door screamed in protest. • An extreme exaggeration to emphasize a point. • Example: “You’ve said that a million times!” Which is the contrast between what we say (the literal meaning of the words) and what is meant. Usually discerned by the tone of the words. • When something happens that is the opposite of what is expected. • When the audience, reader or another character knows more than the characters in the story. This is normally used to create humor or tension. • Example: Shouting at the actor/actress in a horror movie.
