Figures of Speech

Figure of Speech

Figures of speech lend a definite sex appeal to the Language. They are not only a mere ornamentation but a literary and rhetorical device to move, motivate and inspire.


Some of the most common figures of speech asked in IIFT and SNAP






“She pined in thought;

And, with a green and yellow melancholy,

She sat, like Patience on a monument,

Smiling at grief.” — Shakespeare.

The righteous shall flourish as the palm tree



Words are like leaves: and where they most abound, much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.



Life is as tedious as a twice-told tale

Vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.



O my love is like a red, red rose

That’s newly sprung in June

O my love is like a melodie

That’s sweetly played in June.
