Analogy Is Like Metaphor

a: Analogy ~
b: metaphor

What: "Analogy is like metaphor in that it associates two things that are essentially dissimilar. The difference is that the comparison is made more explicit by the use of words such as 'like', 'as', 'than' or 'resembles'. Analogies provide flavour in your presentation by painting vivid pictures that people can really see, instead of abstract concepts that are hard to grasp."
