Here is a sentence that uses the word metaphor. There are various metaphors used in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

In the book Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare uses alot of puns, hyperbole, foreshadowing, metaphor, simile, allusion, personification, dialect, soliquoys, asides, dramatic irony, paradox . . . .

Romeo describes Juliet as the sun in Romeo and Juliet. He says: "through yonder, it is the east and Juliet is the sun."

Romeo and Juliet go to a priest to be married. And Juliet uses confession as an excuse to get out of the house.

Shakespeare does not use the word apathetic in Romeo and Juliet. He never uses it in any of his works.

Yes, Shakespeare uses several asides in Romeo & Juliet. Reade the play to see specifically when and where.

It means ever. (From Romeo and Juliet)

Well definately the song "Love Story" by Taylor Swift...she even uses the names Romeo and Juliet in it

Shakespeare did use the word "confuse" but he liked the word "confound" better. Friar Lawrence uses it when Romeo and Juliet meet to be married.

She uses the dagger that Romeo had lying next to him.

In act three scene five, Juliet uses her words carefully so that her mother doesn't know if she is talking about Romeo or Tybalt. Juliet is weeping at Romeo's departure, but tells her mother that she's not well. Her mother, however, jumps to the conclusion that Juliet is weeping over the death of Tybalt. Thus begins a dialogue in which Lady Capulet speaks of Tybalt but Juliet's replies are about Romeo. Juliet tells her mother she is not well. Lady Capulet thinks she is talking about Tybalt. "Evermore weeping for your cousin's death? What, wilt thou wash him from his grave with tears..." Juliet replies with "Yet let me weep with such a feeling of loss." Here she doesn't make it known that her feeling of loss is for Romeo and not as much for Tybalt. Lady Capulet says she was going to send someone to kill Romeo and hopes Juliet will then be happy. Juliet says "Indeed I never shall be satisfied With Romeo till I behold him-dead-". She used the word 'dead' on purpose so her mother will think dead refers to Romeo. But Juliet uses the word in reference to her heart. "-Is my poor heart so for a kinsman vexed." Later in the dialogue, Lady Capulet says"…Thursday morn The County Paris, at St. Peter's Church, Shall happily make thee there a joyful bride." Lady Capulet realizes Juliet wasn't talking about Tybalt at all when she tells her "…I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear it shall be Romeo…" Her mother then tells her to tell her father and see how he will take it.

"Night" is an extremely common word in Romeo and Juliet and is used all the time. Juliet uses it eleven times in her soliloquy "Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds."

Shakespeare uses the word "occasion" three times in Romeo and Juliet, once in Act 2 and twice in Act 3.

Plenty of Metaphor, Simile and Personification. There are many allusions and apostrophe is common. Oxymorons are less common, although he uses them a lot in Romeo and Juliet. Synechdoche and metope constantly.

Shakespeare uses the word "loins" to figuratively represent a person's private parts. In Romeo and Juliet, for example, he uses the word in the prologue to indicate that Romeo and Juliet are the children of long-time enemy families.

If you're talking about the a' as in, "And then my husband--God be with his soul, a' was a merry man." - Nurse, Romeo&Juliet It's an archaic abbreviation of sorts. Pronounce it "uh".

Romeo's dagger, right after Romeo drinks the poison.

A low-born person. Tybalt uses it to insult Romeo; it's a pretty feeble insult.

The metaphor he uses most often is a shining light. When he first sees her, at Capulet's feast, he says, "O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!" (Act 1, Scene 5) When he is in Capulet's garden and sees her come to her window, he says, "But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? / It is the east, and Juliet is the sun." (Act 2, Scene 2)

look in act 3 scene 2 after the nurse has told Juliet about romeo killing Tybalt - Juliet uses loads of antithesis in couple of little monolgues she makes

Throughout his play, Shakespeare uses death to move his story along. He does this with actual deaths, which cause problems for the lovers, and through premonitions and dreams of death. Both Juliet and her Romeo exhibit these premonitions/dreams.

The Capulet tomb Well, yes. Romeo thinks Juliet is dead because of his servent and doesn't hear the real plan because the guards stopped the priest from delivering the message. Romeo drinks poison. Later, Juliet wakes up and sees this, uses his dagger to commit suicide. Hope this helps!

In Romeo and Juliet Act II, Shakespeare uses simile, personification, and apostrophe. Romeo uses a simile to describe JulietÕs eyes Ð ÒThe brightness of her cheek would shame those stars/As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heavenÉÓ (Act 2 Scene 2). Romeo uses personification to describe JulietÕs beauty Ð ÒIt is the East, and Juliet is the sun!/Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,/Who is already sick and pale with grief.Ó (Act 2 Scene 2) Last, and perhaps most famously, Juliet uses apostrophe Ð ÒO Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore are thou Romeo?Ó (Act 2 Scene 2)
