'Hyperbole' means extravagant exaggeration some examples: * I'm so hungry I could eat a horse. * I have told you a million times not to lie! * They ran like greased lightning. * He's got tons of money. * Her brain is the size of a pea. A hyperbole is an exaggeration meant to illustrate a point. For example, "I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse" is a common hyperbole.
"I got it straight from the horse's mouth." "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth" "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse" "Stop horsing around" "Get down off your high horse" "You don't shut the barn door after the horse gets out" "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink" (this one is actually true).
What do you call it when someone is really hungry and want to eat or when It looks so yummy and you want to eat It?
No. Metaphors do not use the terms "like" or "as" in them. Example: "I'm so hungry, I can eat a horse." You don't really mean you can eat a horse, it's just an expression. A simile uses like or as. Example: "The baby was so small, it looked like a doll." See how they are different? I hope I helped! If not, look up similes and metaphors on google.
She is like a moonbeam on the waves. They are fighting like cats and dogs. Let sleeping dogs lie. I am so hungry, I could eat a horse. I am so tired that my butt is dragging. He is so old that one foot is in the grave. I wouldn't do that in a million years. She eats like a bird. The pen is mightier than the sword.
