What is rhetorical language?

Rhetorical language is any language or wording that conveys a meaning through its structure and form, in addition to its content. Obviously an author can tell the reader something by simply saying it, but often employing a "rhetorical device" or a grouping of words with some rhetorical effect, can emphasize meaning or alter the author's tone. For example, many authors use the common rhetorical device of simile, a comparison with "like" or "as", to aid description. The use of the simile can add depth to the author's meaning, ease to the reader's understanding, and open comparisons for the future; this contrasts the alternate, non-rhetorical method of avoiding the simile and just describing the object in itself.
