Language Types Were going to look at two

Language Types Were going to look at two types of language: figurative language and literal language 1 Figurative vs. Literal To understand what figurative language is, you need to understand the difference between:

figurative and literal 2 LETS START WITH LITERAL Im tired and Im going home. This means Im tired and Im going home. There is no other meaning other than what is said.

I mean exactly what I stated. 3 FIGURATIVE To be figurative is to not mean what you say but to imply something else. For example: If I tell you, Youre the apple of my eye

Im not saying that you are a piece of fruit in my eye. 4 Literal vs. Figurative Confused? Think of it this way: Literal is stated directly. Figurative is imaginary.

5 Why Use Figurative Language? Also known as descriptive language, figurative language helps the writer paint a picture in the

readers mind. 6 This test is a piece of cak e. Literal Figurative TEST

7 My cat is a bolt of lightning. Literal Figurative MEOW!

8 Figurative Language makes reading more interesting. 9 It is raining cats and dogs! What would it LITERALLY mean if it

rained cats and dogs? What does it FIGURATIVELY mean if someone says it rained cats and dogs? Practice your own drawing! On one side of the paper draw the LITERAL meaning and on the other side draw the
