By cottens, Updated
This is the beginning of mapping out an app for a figurative language game to be used for students to learn how to distinguish between the different types.
Figurative Language consists of Metaphors, Simile, Personifications, and Hyperbole.
A metaphor is "a figure of speech containing an implied comparison."
An example of a metaphor is "the curtain of night," or “all the world's a stage”
A simile is a comparison where "like" or "as" is used.
Here are two similes. "as cute as a puppy" and "They fought like cats & dogs."
