When discovering analogies, we find there are many different analogies. Because we use analogies to describe things, there need to be different analogies to describe different things.

For instance, to describe antonyms, we need an analogy that describes opposites. So we might say tall is to short as sharp is to dull. An analogy can also describe part of a whole. Such as, window is to house as branch is to tree.

Analogies can be fun to learn! Analogy games make learning analogies even more exciting! Try watching this great video to learn all the analogy types.
