Definition and form of simile
Simile is a brief comparison of two unlike things using like or as. Related to metaphor A simile is a figure of speech in which two quite unlike things are compared. A simile is often introduced by like or as. Examples are "happy as a clam," "as easy as pie," and "soft as sifted flour." It differs from a metaphor in that the comparison in a metaphor is a implicit: "Achilles is a lion," "She's a tiger," "He seems gruff but he's really just an old pussycat." The statement "that man is a fox" is a metaphor; but "that man is like a fox" is a simile. 1) to compare the similar points between two unlike things. It includes Subject/tenor本体,reference/vehicle喻体,indicator of resemblance/simile marker比喻词 Tenor: the primary subject. Vehicle is the thing to which the main subject is compared. e.g. New China is like a red sun rising in the east. 2) other simile markers: as, as if, as though, as…as, as…so, similar to, to bear a resemblance to… 3) some idioms concerning with simile Fresh as a rose, brave as a lion, cunning as a fox, proud as a peacock. 4) besides the structure of simile, the comparative degree, some prepositional phrases, and other words can also show simile. e.g. He has no more idea of money than a cow.

Definition and form
1)Metaphor: comparison of two unlike things using the verb "to be" and not using like or as as in a simile. A metaphor is also a comparison. But in simile, tenor and vehicle are alike, in metaphor, they are identical; There is simile marker in simile, but there is no in metaphor. So metaphor is called condensed simile. E.g.:
The news is as a dagger to his heart. The news is a dagger to his heart. Joe fought like a lion. Joe was a lion in the battle.

A simile compares things explicitly—that is, it states literally that X is like Y. A metaphor compares things implicitly. Read literally, it does not state that things are alike; it says that they are the same thing, that they are identical. 2) A metaphor does not use simile marker, and sometimes only appears vehicle in a sentence. E.g.:
Money is the lens in a camera.
