What is the difference between a simile and a metaphor?

(1) Answers

A simile is a phrase that uses the words like or as in a sentence to compare two or more things. A metaphor is a phrase / a way to compare two or more completely different things without using like or as in a sentence. Here is an example for a Simile : Wow , he is as fast as a cheetah when running.  Here is an example of a Metaphor : Whoa , that dude is a computer when it comes to math. ________________________________________________________ I really hope that you enjoyed my answers , and examples :) Have a very nice day =)
