FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE What Is Figurative Language? When authors use figurative language, they use similes, metaphors, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, personification, and idioms to make their writing more descriptive. Examples: Simile: a comparison of two items using the words like or as Jan's eyes are as blue as the Caribbean Sea. Metaphor: a comparison of two items without using the words like or as Michael is a clown. Hyperbole: the stretching of the truth, or exaggeration Richard is a growling bear when he is hungry. Onomatopoeia: when authors use words to imitate the noises that are described The hiss of the snake got my dog's attention.
