Figurative Meaning

Definition:

A figure of speech. Using literal words, but not for their actual meaning. There is a second meaning behind them.

Examples:

1) "Those shoes look pretty sick" They aren't literally sick, they're cool. It's a figure of speech.

2) "Listen with your heart, you will understand" - Grandmother Willow, Pocahontas
You can't literally listen with your heart, she means to take decisions with what you feel is right.
