    I had a question about metaphors. What does something like "mossy rock-slides" or "alpine slopes" fall under? Are they metaphors or just descriptive language? Thanks, God Bless!

    Re: Question

    Hi, and welcome to Using English.

    Those both sound like simple description. To me, they are no different than "green house."

    Alpine should have a capital A, I believe.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
