Question:

What is the difference between simile, analogy, and metaphor?

Rebekah M.
Answer:

A simile is a comparison using the words "like", or "as" (i.e. "It was as quiet as a funeral."). An analogy is comparison directly referring to the two objects being compared in order to emphasize their commonalities. A metaphor draws a comparison by stating that something is another thing (i.e. "The relationship was a roller coaster.").
