Hyperbole is a figure of speech that uses exaggeration to create emphasis or make a point. It is a deliberate exaggeration that is not meant to be taken literally but is used to emphasize a particular feeling, idea, or situation. For example, “I have told you a million times” is a hyperbole that exaggerates the number of times a person has said something to emphasize the idea that they have repeated themselves too many times. Hyperbole is often used in literature and poetry to create a vivid and memorable impression or to add humour to a situation. Some common examples of hyperbole include “I’m so hungry I could eat a horse,” “She’s as tall as a skyscraper,” and “He runs faster than the speed of light.”
