Using figurative language adjective clauses

  1. 1. USING FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE - IDENTIFYING ADJECTIVE CLAUSES USING FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE • Figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification) can be used to add depth and imagery to descriptive essays and stories.
  2. 2. • A simile is a way of describing something through a comparison using like or as. Simile: The snow was like a blanket. Explanation: The subject, snow, is being compared to a blanket because it covers the ground in the same way a blanket covers a bed.
  3. 3. • A metaphor is another way of describing something through a comparison but without using like or as; instead the metaphor explicitly states what a thing “is”. The subject and its complement are the same. Metaphor: The setting sun is a red ball of fire falling into the sea. Explanation: The sun is not like a red ball on fire, it is a red ball of fire.
  4. 4. • Personification gives human qualities to animals or objects. This helps the reader better connect with the image. Without personification The sun was shining in the sky. With personification The sun sang its happy summer song.
  5. 5. IDENTIFYING ADJECTIVE CLAUSES • Identifying adjective clauses are groups of words (phrases) that act as adjectives to describe or identify a noun. We saw the dolphin that performed some spectacular feats. Source: http://peelerrosetimeline.blogspot.com/2010/04/dolphin.html
  6. 6. Identifying adjective clauses begin with a relative pronoun. (who, which, that, when, where, in which, whose, in whose). The relative pronoun replaces the noun it describes; the noun is not repeated.
  7. 7. We saw the dolphin. + The dolphin performed some spectacular feats. We saw the dolphin which/that performed some spectacular feats.
