Figurative Language

Each group may choreograph different stanzas of the song.
Figurative language: The use of words to express meaning beyond the literal meaning of the
                                                words themselves.
Imagery  : Language which describes something in detail, using words to substitute for and create sensory stimulation, including visual imagery and sound imagery.
e.g: Mother rocking the cradle. Here child senses with eyes and ears.
Metaphor : The comparison of two unlike things in which no words of comparison (like or as) are used.
e.g: Harry was a lion in the fight.
Simile  : A figure of speech involving a comparison between unlike things using like, as, or as though.
e.g:  as cool as a cucumber, as white as snow, life is just like an ice-cream.
Personification          : Giving non-human objects human characteristics.
e.g:  The moon danced mournfully over the water.
