can you help me define figuative language
Figurative language describes X in terms of Y.
Here are two examples of figurative language:
1. Elena came into the room with all guns blazing.
— metaphor: Elena comes into the room talking or behaving very angrily. She is presented as if she were a ship in a sea battle.
2. Elena came into the room like a whirlwind.
— simile: Elena comes into the room very hurriedly, or with a great deal of fuss and noise. She is compared to a whirlwind.
Does that help?
