Does an analogy ever have "as" in it. I'm just trying to figure out figures of speech and I know Writeteacher told me "as" would be a simile but in the following:
My brother has grown a great deal in the last year. He is almost as tall as I am now. This can't be a simile correct because it's comparing two like things so would this be an analogy, then? Thank you for helping

  • English Lit-Never Mind I answered my own question -

    If it was an analogy it would have to be two word pairs like
    Chapter is to book as state is to nation??Correct?
