2.What figure of speech is this:The fog comes on little cat feet
This one I hav no idea-I thought it was personification but that's not one of the answers

simile
metaphor
synecdoche
litotes
metonymy

    You're right about the first one.

    Hint for # 2 --It compares two unlike things -- and doesn't use "like" or "as."

  • English -

    It would be a metaphor-is that correct?

  • English -

    Right! It's a metaphor.
