What are some examples of figurative elements?
An oxymoron is an example of figurative language that contains two seemingly contradictory elements, such as "wise fool ," "jumbo shrimp" or "icy hot ." Using a physical object to indicate a larger idea is named metonymy. For instance, the word "crown" can refer to a king or a monarchical system, or even an entire royal family.
