  • An idiom is a phrase that means something other than it says. The girl was as cool as cake.  The car costs an arm and a leg. Hyperbole is a huge exaggeration used to make a point. He could sleep forever.  My bag weighs a ton.
  • Personification is giving human characteristics to a non-human object The movie flickered to life when we came into the theater. My bed jumps with joy when I get home.
  • I need to know figurative language because it make what you say or write more interesting.  Figurative language can help make a point or can help explain something. It can also add humor to what you write, and it can give your writing more pizzazz. For example, if I write "I'm feeling sick today" I could make it more interesting by using an idiom and writing, "I feel under the weather today."
