List of metaphors in the English language organised by type. A metaphor is a literary figure of speech that uses an image, story or tangible thing to represent a less tangible thing or some intangible quality or idea e.g., "Her eyes were glistening jewels". Metaphor may also be used for any rhetorical figures of speech that achieve their effects via association, comparison or resemblance.
In this broader sense, antithesis, hyperbole, metonymy and simile would all be considered types of metaphor. Aristotle used both this sense and the regular, current sense above.
A metaphor (from the Latin metaphora) takes an object or action and compares it to something blindingly familiar, but completed unrelated.
The comparison in a metaphor is always non-literal, which makes it weirdly illogical. And yet, its meaning is (usually) abundantly clear.
A metaphor states that one thing is another thing, It equates those two things not because they actually are the same, but for the sake of comparison or symbolism, If you take a metaphor literally, it will probably sound very strange (are there actually any sheep, black or otherwise, in your family?), Metaphors are used in poetry, literature, and anytime someone wants to add some color to their language.
