    Re: vbnytuy,

    This is some general info:

    Meaning in language can be either figurative (connotative) and litteral (denotative). The literal meaning is straightforward, or "in so many words", whereas the figurative meaning departs from the literal language for the sake of emphasis and expression. Figurative language is about employing figures of speech in communication, and is mostly used in poetry, but also in daily conversation ("time is money" is a trope, a metaphor.)
