I am really struggling to write and example of figurative language device, emphasis. How would I do this? I have one written for repetition, but I am not sure how to do emphasis.

  1. Emphasis is not a figurative device, but you can create emphasis by means of figurative devices, such as hyperbole, simile, and others.
