PROBABLY.... TEEHEE YOUR WELCOME! ;)

i guess that could be one but your not giving the 'tree' a name either the 'wind' a human like name, there are more simple ways of personification. E.g if you bought a new car instead of saying "the car is a beauty" you could say "she's a beauty" so giving human qualities to a non-human, being, objects. Hoped this helped! :P

Is this personification? If not, what is it?

"the whole regrettable incident would be deemed not to have occurred."

It is not a personification rather it is a simple statement.

"She looked at me wistfully"

in reference to a duck

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 11/06/2013 - 22:36
Sort of

This is more metaphorical in nature.
" She looked at me (wistfully).

The duck was watching you like a human would. You can associate the way the duck was watching you with the way a human may. You wouldn't know how to describe the way the duck was watching you unless you could compare it to the way a human might.

HELP

if someone is described as an object , for example " she was like a boulder in a road " , would that as well be personification?

No, it is a simile. You are say she is "like" a boulder.

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 19:29
she was like a boulder in the road

That is NOT personification--the writer is not giving human traits to the boulder. It is a simple simile, comparing her to a boulder--it creates an image of her, perhaps being large and hard to move, and by extension, she is stubborn.

No, you cannot call that as personification because you are not addressing someone as something whereas you are comparing the girl with something.

HOPE YOU FIND IT HELPFUL.

No

No, definitely not. I'm not sure what term is used to describe that. Perhaps objectification? But personification is only when an object is given HUMAN-like charactoristics

Is this a personification? Please help.

"A clumsy good-bye."

OR

"The floor board squeaked under my footsteps."

??Please help.

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 07/04/2013 - 01:27
almost correct

1 clumsy is an action which can be done by anyone so it is not personification
2 it is personification as squeaked is a sound(action) made by a living being

is the quote "plastics are a big killer of marine life" a personification?i dont think it is but could it be?

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/12/2013 - 22:45
No

No it is a metaphor... it compares plastic to big killer of marine life.

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 04/27/2013 - 10:22
Metaphor

its is a metaphor because its two unlike things that are conmpared.

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 04/17/2013 - 16:23
not a metaphor

its not comparing anything, its giving something that's not a person, a description or adjective as if it was one

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 06:18
Actually...

Actually reading the extract carefully we can conclude that the plastic is identified as an instrument or factor of death to marine life. We can therefore say the plastic is compared to a murderer based on the word (killer) used.We do not know whether killer refers to a person, animal or thing in the extract but we do see that there is a linkage in comparison between plastic and this other factor of death.
