Similes and metaphors are both figures of speech that involve a comparison of two objects, to express the thoughts with greater clarity. However, there are a few differences between the two. What are they?
How to convert a simile to metaphor? Remove the comparison words "as" and "like" from the simile to form the metaphor.
He is as brave as a lion - is a simile.
He is a lion - is the metaphor.
  • Remember, metaphors give only indirect meanings. Hence the word "brave" is not required. It is implied that he is as brave as a lion.
