    Homework

    I sat down with my 9 year old last night to help her with her English homework. She had a poem which she had to read and was provided with some questions:

    1) Give an example from the poem of a simile
    2) Give an example from the poem of a metaphor
    3) Give an example from the poem of an amaphor

    Question:

    What is an amaphor?

    Possibly a spelling mistake

    Anaphor is a word (such as a pronoun) used to avoid repetition

    Re: Homework

    Ok

    It looks like nobody is going for this one....

    It derives from an old but gold joke of "What is an amaphor?"

    A. "For 'itting in nails"
