Question and answer
Twain's lively writing contains many examples of figures of speech; that is, he uses words in an unusual and imaginative way to give vivid pictures. The simile is one figure of speech that compares
one thing to another, using the words like or as. When Twain writes, "His underjaw would stick out like the fo'castle of a steamboat," he is using a simile. Familiar expressions such as "as cool as a cucumber," "spread like wildfire," and "cross as a bear" are all similes. Find two other similes in Twain's story.
I'm sorry but I do not know the story you mentioned.

How are the four functions of language interrelated?
Weegy: # A means of conveying information example, "The Kyneton train is now approaching on platform 4." This example is conveying to those waiting for the Kyneton train that it has now arrived. # An instrument of action example, [ "Don't forget to feed the dog." This example is telling the second person in the conversation to do something. # To maintain social relationships example, "G'day, how ya going?" Here we see that this function allows us to make and keep friends. This function is usually more informal than others. # Acting as a marker of groups example, "He was out for a duck." This example would only be heard by someone talking about the cricket, therefore establishing that the people involved in the conversation are involved with cricket in one way or another, marking them as a group.

In the professional world, people often "dress for success." They wear expensive suits and ties to give the impression that they are confident and powerful. High school and college students often dress to give the impression that they are "hip" or fashionable. When is it unethical to dress in a manner that masks the real you? Explain by using an example from your own experiences.
Weegy: actually dress gives the first impression of a person. [ so peoples wear nice and expencive dresses for their impression.for takin any job or to get good marks in an interview is not simple if u r not well dresssed.so in my opinion people must be welll dressed for having their good experience. ] (More)
