    ANALOGY GAME


    An "ANALOGY" is a comparison in which different items are compared point by point, usually with the idea of explaining something unknown by something known. Analogies are offered to provide insights, and can be very instructive, and helpful with one’s writing. Analogies tend to suggest that existing similarities imply even more similarities.

    Formal analogies are in this general form:
    a:b::c:d
    This is read as follows: \"a is to b as c is to d\". What that means in plainer English is that the relationship between \"a\" and \"b\" is similar somehow to the relationship between \"c\" and \"d.\"

    Here are more specific examples:

    1. Shoe is to FOOT as tire is to _____________. (answer is WHEEL)
    2. Followers are to a LEADER as planets are to a _________ .(answer is SUN)
    3. SHELLS were to ancient cultures as ________________are to modern culture.
    (answer is DOLLAR BILLS)
    4. Milk is to a COW as wool is to a _____________ .(answer is SHEEP)


    In each of these examples, there are parallels between the first to terms and the last two. In the first example, a shoe has the same relation to a foot that a tire has to a wheel. Followers, by the same logic, are similar to planets, and shells functioned in some ancient cultures as printed money functions in our culture today.

    Please number; use any of the above formats when posting a new analogy, use capital letters for the comparison words, and answers should be no more than 2 to 3 words. Ok

    I will start…………ENJOY!!!! ~*PaintedDiary*~

    Sheep is to LAMB as bear is to ______________.

    The next person will copy and paste the above with the answer, then
    proceed to type your simple analogy for the next person to figure out. We will keep it simple, for all to participate.
