This week we spoke about simile.
A simile is a figure of speech that makes a comparison, showing similarities between two different things. Unlike a metaphor, a simile draws resemblance with the help of words “like” or “as”. Therefore, it is direct comparison.
So, we know that structure of simile is A is like/as B.
A simile has 3 objects: the tenor, the vehicle and link-word.
Semantically it could be original and trite. Trite similes in dictionaries called cliches.
And structurally could be ordinary and disguised.
Here are some examples of similes:
Feel free to use similes when you want. Using similes in a social setting will make you look witty and well read. However, when using a simile, make it look like you are a natural. Do not make the mistake of making it look like you have rehearsed your lines for then it might just backfire.
