Improve your writing with this periodic table of the figures of speech

from Lifehacker

When you write something — either for work or for fun — the purpose is to convey meaning and engage whoever reads it. Knowing how to use the figures of speech in your writing can take it to the next level, and this table can help show you how. The table is from designer Curtis Newbold—The Visual Communication Guy — and it covers the two main figures of speech: tropes and schemes. Tropes include things like metaphors, personifications, onomatopoeia, hyperbole and irony. Schemes include things like climax, parenthesis, ellipsis and alliteration. Each one is categorized and described so you know what it is and how to use it. more
