Simile:

This is a direct comparison between two dissimilar things using “as” “like” and “than”.

Examples:

  • Ada talks like a parrot
  • Uche ate her food like a wolf
  • He crawled like a snake 
  • Timothy is as cunning as a fox
  • He is as dirty as a pig
  • Mugibi is like a mad dog
  • She is as beautiful as her mother
  • Ariya runs like an antelope
  • He is larger than life
  • I am better than you

Metaphor:

Metaphor implies a comparison of two things in a direct manner. In a simile, we compare one thing, idea, or person to another using ‘as’, ‘like’ and ‘than’ but in metaphor we say one thing is another thing directly. She is a goat.

Examples are:

  • Bola has a heart of stone.
  • Ada is a parrot.
  • He is a pig.
  • You are the salt of life.
  • She is a dove.
