What is figurative language

Language that goes beyond the ordinary meaning of words. Figurative language is different from literal language in that the former uses all kinds of techniques including metaphor, simile, and so on to get its message across whilst the latter (literal) uses straightforward factual language. Figurative speech is desirable for novel writing because it is more interesting but literal is more appropriate in an official document and in academic writing.

Non-literal or figurative language refers to words, and groups of words, that exaggerate or alter the usual meanings of the component words.
