Language Types Were going to look at two

Language Types Were going to look at two types of language: figurative language and literal language 1 Figurative vs. Literal To understand what figurative language is, you need to understand the difference between:

figurative and literal 2 LETS START WITH LITERAL Im tired and Im going home. This means Im tired and Im going home. There is no other meaning other than what is said.

I mean exactly what I stated. 3 FIGURATIVE To be figurative is to not mean what you say but to imply something else. For example: If I tell you, Youre the apple of my eye

Im not saying that you are a piece of fruit in my eye. 4 Literal vs. Figurative Confused? Think of it this way: Literal is stated directly. Figurative is imaginary.
