Storyboard Text

  • Metaphor
  • My hair is being compared to a golden river but without using "like" or "as"
  • Personification
  • The tree doesn't actually dance. That's just giving the tree a characteristic that humans have.
  • Hyperbole
  • When I say "My shoes are killing me" I just mean that my feet hurt, not that they're literally killing me. I exaggerated for effect.
  • A comparison between two unlike things without using the word "like" or "as" to make the comparison. ex. "Her hair was a flowing golden river streaming down her shoulders ."
  • Understatement
  • The speaker or writer gives human characteristics to an object. ex. "The tree danced in the wind"
  • Simile
  • Exaggerating for emphasis or effect. ex. "My dress shoes are killing me!!"
  • Symbolism
  • The speaker or writer expresses an idea with significantly less force than is expected. ex. "The ghost rose with the speed of a slug."
  • A comparison of two unlike things useing "like" or "as". ex. "She's as white as a ghost!"
