Do Now: Monday, August 18, 2014 a·nal·o·gy (əˈnaləjē)/noun: a comparison between two things, typically on the basis of their structure, function, or qualities and for the purpose of explanation or clarification “I feel like a fish out of water.” The relationship between the fish and land is analogous to how I feel in uncomfortable situations "Withdrawal of U.S. troops will become like salted peanuts to the American public; the more U.S. troops come home, the more will be demanded." - Henry Kissinger I am as graceful as a refrigerator falling down a flight of stairs.

Answer: B What makesB splinter : wood the right answer? A splinter is a very small piece that breaks off or splits away from a piece of wood. You can use almost the very same words to describe the relationships between CRUMB and BREAD, on the one hand, and splinter and wood, on the other. That is what makes the relationship analogous, what make them similar. None of the relationships between the two words in the other choices is similar to the relationship between CRUMB and BREAD: • An ounce is a type of unit; it is not a small piece of a unit. • Water can be carried in a bucket; it is not a piece of a bucket. • Twine is thinner and less strong than rope, but it is not a small piece that breaks off of a rope. • Cream is what butter is made from, but cream is not a small piece of butter.
