ENGLISH!!!

is this personification:

personification

No, this is not personification. In this narrative, a person goes to a dress shop to get a dress. Its just a story.

Personification is when you give something that ISNT human, human qualities - emotions etc.

E.g. "The wind howled with rage". Wind is a natural occurrence that doesn't feel emotion, but with personification, it appeals as though it does.

no, if moonlight is the inanimate object, then it isn't personification, because humans can't spill on the floor

Hi!

I would like to know if "At that moment, sadness hit him" is a personification?

Thanks !

Things other then humans can hit someone. A book can hit someone, and yet it can't speak or walk.

Things other "than"... Sorry, I'm not usually prone to pointing out grammatical errors in posts; however, this is a writing focused discussion, so I feel compelled.

no, this is not a personification as it is not giving an inanimate object a human characteristic.......him refers to a person, not an inanimate object :)

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/10/2015 - 17:27
I disagree

I think it is personification... Sadness is the thing hitting him. "Hit" is something that humans do and "sadness" is not a human. The sentence contains a human, but it doesn't mean personification doesn't apply.

Personification?

'At the bottom of his heart.' Is this personification?

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 11/19/2014 - 18:01
idiom

this is an idiom and an exaggeration (the heart actually does have a 'bottom,' but the phrase itself has an entirely different meaning -> thus, an idiom).

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 11/16/2014 - 17:43
Not really because looming is

Not really because looming is not a distinctly human characteristic. Lots of things loom, it's a verb.
Personification is more like: the walls have ears (this may be more of an idiom). Or the trees blew happily in the breeze. Try a poem like "Daffodils"' by Wordsworth for more examples

"the shoes go tapping" personification or not?

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 11/03/2014 - 02:26
onomatopoeia

no!
it is an onomatopoeia bacause tapping create or make a sound.

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 11/26/2014 - 16:08
tapping is not onomatopia

tapping is not onomatopia

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 03/26/2015 - 23:32
No

Tapping simply describes the sound itself. "The shoes' tapping shouted a warning of my approach," would be personification.
