Student’s Name Professor’s Name: Course: Date: Essay Thesis: Figurative language should be used more than literal language Language usually comes using two categories: figurative and literal. The literal language mostly employs the use of words in their conventional way. This I believe is that literal language means what one says is what they meant. This means that language is straightforward to understand. It can be summed up by conventional computer use of garbage in garbage out. I have a feeling that language use is interesting when one uses figurative language. This means that the use of the words elicits different meaning from their conventional use and it makes the listener of them make out what they meant. For example when I say “at the end of the symposium the narrator kicked the bucket”; this is a figurative language that does not mean that the narrator kicked a pail but ensures there is a link subsisting within the concepts and its primary goal is to influence the reader to follow the connection even if it does not exist. Prose writers usually make use of this technique in conveying their emotions and make the audience to formulate images in their minds. Therefore this technique ensures that the readers can get ideas that are hard to understand conventionally. This can be due to it being complicated or abstract naturally. Moreover it assists in analyzing works. Works Cited Beck Sara D. and Andrea Weber.
