# Figure of Speech

A figure of speech is the use of a word or a phrase, which ascend from its literal interpretation. It can also be a special repetition, arrangement or omission of words with literal meaning, or a phrase with a specialized meaning not based on the literal meaning of the words in it, as in idiom, metaphor, simile, hyperbole, personification, or synecdoche.

A figure of speech is a departure from the ordinary form of experience, or the ordinary course of ideas, in order to produce a greater effect.” —Wren.
