Metaphor

Chummy the giant

No, this is an example of a simile. Similes use "like" or "as". Chummy the giant was AS tall AS the redwood.
Metaphors state that one thing IS another. For example: Usain Bolt was a flash of lightning on the track.
This sentence conveys the message that Bolt was fast, even though it states that he was a literal streak of lightning.
Hope this helps!

Metaphor??

Yes it is a metaphor, as metaphors compare one subject or idea to another. Usually they describe or rename the subject of the sentence, and in this case "mouse" describes or complements "Mia." I've noticed that metaphors always or almost always have a linking verb connecting the two objects together.

Hope this helped!

Not really

If you know what a simile is, it's a comparison using the words like or as. A metaphor is basically the same thing but instead, you don't use like or as.

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 09/25/2016 - 05:15
No Sorry.

No its a personification because humans die not winter.
Its about describing like a human.
A metaphor is saying about something but actually it isnt that or like it.
Hope you understand bye.

Suggest a metaphor

What is a good metaphor for "weighing a million tons"?

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 05/25/2016 - 16:06
Actually

That would actually be a hyperbole which is an exaggeration of something, while the cow doesn't actually weigh a million tons or whatever, it does weigh a good amount.

Metaphor with "weighing a million tons"

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 06/02/2016 - 03:07
Hyperbole

That's not a metaphor, it's a hyperbole, (hi-pur-bo-lee.) It's a large exaggeration that is difficult to believe, and in this case it would be rather difficult to imagine a cow weighing a million tons.
