A simile is a figure of speech comparing two different subjects to emphasize a trait they have in common; however, UNLIKE a metaphor, a simile will use the words like or as to make a more indirect comparison. These subjects can be objects, people, animals, colors, concepts, phenomena, etc. Some examples of similes are
- "it's as thin as a rail,"
- "her words struck like lightning,"
- "they're as stubborn as mules," and
- "he's like a rock."
