What are Similes?
The English Language is full of wonderful things. Everything that we learn is something new and unique. And most of all, fun!
While you might think that there are mostly complicated things in the language, that is usually not true. One such example are similes. Do you know what they are? Let's take a look!
A figure of speech that compares two different things with each other in an interesting way is known as simile. We use similes in sentences so that they read better and most of all, spark an interest in the listener's and reader's mind.
Similes are a figurative form of speech. They help in better understanding what the speaker is trying to say. We use similes in daily conversations without even realizing that they are similes!
Some examples are:
She is as busy as a bee.
The flash is as quick as lightning.
The weather is as cold as ice!
