What is figure of speech ?:

What is figure of speech ? Figure of Speech is the use of a word or words diverging from its usual meaning. It can also be a special repetition, arrangement or omission of words with literal meaning, or a phrase with a specialized meaning not based on the literal meaning of the words in it.


simile Simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two different things, usually by employing the words like or as. Examples :- He runs like a cheetah. She swims like a dolphin. You were as brave as lion.


metaphor Metaphor are comparisons that show how two things that are not alike in most are similar in one important way. Examples :- Language is a road map of culture Her eyes were glistening jewels The promise between us was a delicate flower .


Alliteration.. Alliteration is the duplication of a specific consonant sound at the start of each word and in quick succession. Although alliterations are all about consonant sounds, exceptions can be made, when vowels sounds are also repeated. This figure of speech is commonly seen in poems . Examples :- You'll never put a better bit of butter on your knife. The soul selects her own society . Mike’s microphone made much music.


repetition Repetition is the simple repeating of word, within a sentence or a poetical line, with no particular placement of the words, in order to provide emphasis. Examples :- They live their faith. They breath their faith. They act their faith. Divided, we are divided, we fall. Divided ,we’re doomed. Life is inevitable. Death is inevitable. Our choices remain inevitable.


Paradox.. A paradox is an argument that produces an inconsistency, typically within logic or common sense. Most logical paradoxes are known to be invalid arguments but are still valuable In promoting critical thinking. Examples :- Don’t go near the water until you’ve learned to swim. Nobody goes to that restaurant, it’s too crowded. If you get this message, call me; if you don’t, then don’t worry about it.

Oxymoron.. An oxymoron (plural oxymora or oxymorons ) is a figure of speech that combines incongruous or contradictory terms. Examples :- That building is a little bit big and pretty ugly. Do you have the original copies that we requested?. I had be careful in the playground, run slowly.


Irony.. The use of words to convey the opposite of their literal meaning. A statement or situation where the meaning is contradicted by the appearance or presentation of the idea. Examples :- He was so intelligent, that he failed all his tests. The cat was chased by the rat. The robbers were robbed.


Personification.. Personification is a type of metaphor in which distinctive human characteristics are attributed to an animal, object or idea. Examples :- My car is happy to be washed! The road isn't built that can make it breathe hard! The picture in that magazine shouted for attention.


Spoonerism .. A transposition of sounds of two or more words, especially a ludicrous one. Examples :- Tons of soil – sons of toil Fighting a liar – lightning a fire Nosey little cook – cosy little nook


Sarcasm.. Sarcasm is a “sharp, bitter, or cutting expression of remark; a bitter gibe or taunt.” Examples :- The bible was written by the same people who said the earth was flat. Make yourself at home! Clean my kitchen. Well, aren’t we just pay a ray of frigging sunshine?.
