Metaphors in English

English Vocabulary 30 March 2010 | 0 Comments

I had a few people ask me about metaphors, so I thought I’d write a post about them. Metaphors are like similes because they both show how 2 different things are alike. Similes use ‘like’ or ‘as’ and metaphors do not. So, metaphors are a bit more subtle than similes.

Here are a few examples of metaphors:

The United States is a melting pot.

My son’s stomach is a bottomless pit.

You are the sunshine in my life.

Life is a roller coaster.

Love is a camera, full of memories.
