hyperbole???????

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/22/2016 - 21:51
Not really

it's more figurative language than hyperbole. Hyperbole is an exaggeration like walking into a candy shop and saying, "I'm going to eat all of the chocolate!", or getting off a ride and saying, "We went a million feet in the air!"

Though the exclamation marks are unnecessary, the point is that there is exaggeration. Figurative language more describes one thing as something more dramatic, as your example does

is this a hyperbole ?

"Is tomorrow May 3?" ,current date is April 9

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/08/2016 - 21:17
Well...

I guess it could be if the message you were trying to say was that it feels like time is passing by extremely quickly, or slowly, and so it feels like tomorrow should be May 3rd. However, that example is pretty specific for a hyperbole.

I feel like it is more

I feel like it is more personification than hyperbole. You would be personifying death, not exaggerating their action.
