Figures of Speech

Figures of Speech

This quiz round lists 15 phrases and sentences such as "round the rugged rocks the ragged rascal ran", "I've told you a million times" and "he is as blind as a bat". Choosing from a mixed up list, the aim is to match up the figures of speech to the phrases and sentences that are the best examples of them. For example, "alliteration" should be matched up to "round the rugged rocks the ragged rascal ran".

The information in this round could be used to make up standard question and answer rounds (where the quiz-master asks questions aloud and the teams write the answers on blank answer sheets), but it is presented so that it can also be used as a handout round. You can find more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes on our handout rounds page. 

If you buy this handout round, we will give you access to pdf files you can download. This will include both the versions mentioned above, with one pdf file for each as illustrated above, and one for each in a more plain format. A fifth sheet will contain the answers. You probably already have everything you need to access and use these rounds in your quiz, but you might want to check our requirements page to make sure.
