Figurative Language
Fiction often uses figurative language
Analogy– My friend’s armpits smell like Chili Cheese Fritos.
Personification – The smell punched me in the nose.
Metaphor – His armpits are the gates of hell.
Hyperbole – They are worse than 10,000 baby diapers.
Idiom – He who smelt it, dealt it.
Oxymoron – The smell was sickly sweet.
