3. Create your Figuratively Speaking Poster

Write out your figurative language first BEFORE you add it to your poster.

Write first in pencil.  Then go over it in ink. 
Your work must be neat and legible. 

By May _20/21– for English class
Bring a photo of yourself DOING SOMETHING.

-1 onomatopoeia   
-1 allusion   


Extra credit for alliteration (at least three or more repetitions of a sound)



Sample picture and Figurative Language 
from the famous Ms. Dorsey

Though the night was as dark as pitch,  (simile/comparison)
seeing the play Nosferatu live on stage was a dream come true. (metaphor)
We were dying to meet the actor who played the title role. (hyperbole)
You can tell that the camera loved us as we danced with the vampire after the show. (personification)
Thud, thud, stomp, stomp went our feet.  (onomatopoeia) 
This was a vampire who neither sparkled nor made girls swoon, 
but spending time with him was a thriller.  (allusions) 
Very soon the villainous, vigorous, voracious vampire 
vanished from view.   (alliteration)




Samples of Types of Figurative Language and a Sound Device
Simile:
Poised between going on and back, pulled
Both ways taut like a tight-rope walker,
Now bouncing tiptoe like a dropped ball,
Or a kid skipping rope, come on, come on!…
Taunts them, hovers like an ecstatic bird,
He’s only flirting, crowd him, crowd him,
(The Base Stealer by Robert Francis)

Metaphor:


  • The assignment was a breeze. (This implies that the assignment was not difficult.)
  • Her voice is music to his ears. (This implies that her voice makes him feel happy)
Personification: 
  • The wind whispered through dry grass.
  • The flowers danced in the gentle breeze.
  • Time and tide waits for none.
  • The fire swallowed the entire forest.
Onomatopoeia:
  • The buzzing bee flew away.
  • The sack fell into the river with a splash.
  • The books fell on the table with a loud thump.
  • He looked at the roaring sky.
  • The rustling leaves kept me awake.
Hyperbole:
  • My grandmother is as old as the hills.
  • Your suitcase weighs a ton!
  • She is as heavy as an elephant!
  • I am dying of shame.
  • I am trying to solve a million issues these days.
Allusion:
  • “Don’t act like a Romeo in front of her.” – “Romeo” is a reference to Shakespeare’s Romeo, a passionate lover of Juliet, in “Romeo and Juliet”.
  • The rise in poverty will unlock the Pandora’s box of crimes. – This is an allusion to one of Greek Mythology’s origin myth, “Pandora’s box”.
  • “This place is like a Garden of Eden.” – This is a biblical allusion to the “garden of God” in the Book of Genesis.
Alliteration:
From Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”
“The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,
The furrow followed free;
We were the first that ever burst
Into that silent sea.”

2.  More on the figurative language assignment

Literal Language and Figurative Language

Literal language means exactly what it says, while figurative language uses similes, metaphors, hyperbole, and personification to describe something often through comparison with something different. 
--www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/lesson-docs/LiteralFigurativeHandout.pdf












Which is this?  Figurative or Literal? 



 Imagery  -- descriptive or figurative language, language that appeals to the five senses 


 Symbol -- something that represents a larger idea or concept

Figurative Language -- expressions used as descriptions that are not meant literally.




(Literal Language) -- When you use literal language, you really mean what you say.     http://www.boredpanda.com/funny-idioms-proverbs-illustrations-keren-rosen/
     Metaphor  a comparison between two unlike things for the purpose of description

Chart for Examples and Non-Examples of Simile and Metaphor

      Simile -- a comparison between two unlike things (using like or as) for the purpose of description

Figurative Language        

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K9pd6h9JT0

    Personification --  a nonhuman thing is given human traits
    Hyperbole -- exaggeration

Hyperbole and Yo Mama!

   Alliteration  -- words next to each other or close together begin with the same sound

  Onomatopoeia  -- a word that imitates the sound it describes
     Rhyme   -- endings of words sound the same


 Imagery  -- descriptive or figurative language, language that appeals to the five senses 



Should you need more:

Personification


"A hook shot kisses the rim. . . "

Onomatopoeia

Figurative Language with Song Lyrics PowerPoint


Alliteration example from Adeleigh W. :
Baby Billy broke my big brother's bottle of blobs, but built it back together by bananas, and Billy's buddies (Bilbo, Bach, Bonnie, Brian, Brianna, Becca, Benny, Ben, Bill, Bob, and Breatta) dropped by to buy the bottles of blueish, brownish blobs.
More  figurative language:  alliteration, assonance
(with Grammar Rock Sentence Game)

Alliteration



A1 Alliteration --
One student sentence:  "Five ferrets freaked out for their friend, Frank Fally while four to fifteen other ferrets ate fabulous fish." -- Adeleigh W.

Awesome Attention to Alliteration!
Tons of Hyperbole!   

Hyperbole  --   Hyperbole and Yo Mama!


The word hyperbole comes from --
 about1520; Greek hyperbolḗ excess, exaggeration,throwing beyond, 
equivalent to hyper- hyper- + bolḗ   throw
