FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE
FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE is using language to create a strong
image in the reader’s mind.
I’M SO ANGRY I COULD BLOW MY TOP.
“Blow my top” is an example of FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE. It doesn’t
mean his head is going to blow up. The writer wants you, the reader,
to understand he is very angry!
Blow my top is an idiom.
I’M SO HUNGRY I COULD EAT A HORSE.
The writer is exaggerating his hunger. He means he is very
hungry, but he wants the reader to be able to understand how
hungry he is.
So, he writes using FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE. I could eat a horse is
an hyperbole.
