hey i was wondering if you could define me what literal language and figurative language is .
if you can run very fast it does not literraly mean that you are as fast as wind. The meaning is figurative here.
The literal meaning is that you can run very fast, you are very good
Unfortunately, many students (children in particular) take figurative language literally. This briefcase weighs a tonne, they might just think it does and come away with a belief that a tonne is close to the weight of a suitcase
