Figurative Language


A hyperbole is an extreme exaggeration. These statements are not literally true, but people make them to sound impressive or to emphasize something.

Examples: I nearly died laughing.  I tried a thousand times.  

Open your figurative language journal:
  •  Date it, and title the page HYPERBOLE.  
  • Write down the definition and three examples you make up or find on your own.  
  • Choose one of them to illustrate.
