Analogy Examples

An analogy is is a likeness or a comparison between two things, the source and the target, that have some features that are the same and others which are different. For example, "I feel like a fish out of water." which implies that a person is not comfortable in your surroundings. In other words, an analogy is an inference or an argument from one particular to another particular. The word analogy can also refer to the relation between the source and the target themselves, which is often, though not necessarily, a similarity, as in the biological notion of analogy. Analogies differ in two ways, some are written as similes and others are metaphors. A simile is an analogy that compares two things using the words "as" or "like;" however, a metaphor is an analogy where two unlike things are compared but have something in common.

Analogies play an intricate role in the solution of problems such as perception, memory, decision making and communication. Thus understanding the meaning of an analogy is key to the success of the analogy in communication. In some cases an analogy will be understood by most people that speak the same language, within small social groups of people, or by people living in a certain region or country.
