What is an example of figurative language?
Types of figurative language include simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification, alliteration, onomatopoeia, cliches, and idioms. --- In figurative language (as opposed to literal language), images and symbols are used to give enriched meaning. For example, the phrase, "the eagle flies with the dove," isn't talking about birds, but the eagle represents America and the dove represents peace. So the phrase is figurative language about America promoting peace instead of war. Figurative language includes hyperbole, metaphor, simile, and paradoxes.
