Language Methods Defined With Examples (GCSE English Language AQA)

I made this info sheet for Year 11s to use as a revision tool, but this stuff is just as useful for teachers and younger students.

Get your students used to spotting metaphor, simile, hyperbole, emotive, sensory and juxtaposition. The sheet contains definitions and examples for these, plus some tips on how to analyse them in the exam.

This is not an exhaustive list of language methods, but does define some of the more common and ‘juicy’ methods found in texts.
