Homework Help: grammar(english)

Posted by destiny on Wednesday, May 23, 2007 at 11:00pm.

i need to find similes

he was as hard as a rock.
she was as gentle as a dove.
the wall was like a mountian i could not climb.

similie = a comparision between two words using "like" or "as" to compare
(examples above)

hope this helps!

To add to Marie's excellent answer, I searched Google under the key words "simile" to get these possible sources:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simile
http://www.tnellen.com/cybereng/lit_terms/simile.html
http://www.saidwhat.co.uk/spoon/similes.php
(Broken Link Removed)
http://rhetoric.byu.edu/Figures/S/simile.htm

In the future, you can find the information you desire yourself, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
