similie - figure of speech in which two unlike things are explicitly compared, as in “she is like a rose.”similie is a literary device, hence we do not make a sentence with it, but applies it into different contexts, for example, "She is like a rose", we are likening her beauty to that of a rose.
similie 是把一個人, 事, 物 比喻為 另一個東西, 是一種修辭法, 好比國語中我們說, "你彷彿和花朵般美麗" 是同一個道理; 所以每當英文句子裡把一個東西, 用 "like", "as if"等詞用來比喻時, 便是similie.
oxymoron - figure of speech by which a locution produces an incongruous, seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in “cruel kindness” or “to make haste slowly.”oxymoron is too, a literary device that is to be applied, for example "bittersweet" is an example of oxymoron. oxymoron也是英文的修辭法, 是把兩個看似相反的詞放在一起, 例如"苦甜巧克力"中的"苦甜"是相反的辭意; 通常使用oxymoron是為了帶出詞中的對比, 讓他更深刻和引起讀者注意
<b>literally</b> - in the literal or strict sense: What does the word mean literally? the word "literally" means to take the exact meaning from the word, eliminating any idea of it's implied meaning. For example, if someone said that "The city was literally destroyed.", it means that the city is really burnt down to ruins, and we take the literal meaning of "destroyed". Usually we use the adjective to emphasize that what we are saying is not an exaggeration.
metaphor - a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance, as in “A mighty fortress is our God.”the difference between a metaphor is a similie is that a metaphor equates one thing to another. for example, using a metaphor you will say, "He is a pig", but if you were using a similie, it would be, "He is like a pig".
liken - 把…比做, for example, I liken his appearance to that of a monster, 我把他的長相比做成一的怪物的樣子; liken是一個動詞
