  1. Reblogged this on Tales from the mind of Kristian and commented:

    The Word of the Day for Friday was Metaphor,

    The Word of the Day is like rain in the desert for those who need a word to inspire their imagination…. Is that a metaphor or a simile?

    A simile is a figure of speech that compares two otherwise dissimilar things, often introduced by the words like or as (‘you are like a summer’s day’). A metaphor is when a word is used in place of another to suggest a likeness (‘you are a summer’s day’).

    So that was a Simile, rather than a metaphor. I hope you enjoy using this word in a story or a poem.

    Saturday’s word of the Day will be posted shortly.
