    The connotative definition of the word snake - one who is untrustworthy or presents an unseen danger

    The connotative definition of a word is it's secondary meaning. Calling someone a snake gives that person the qualities of a snake such as sneaky and dangerous.

    The denotative definition of the word snake - a scaly, limbless, elongated, sometimes venomous reptile

    The denotative definition of a word is what you would find in the dictionary. It is the most literal definition.

    A sentence featuring the literal meaning of the word snake - Anita told everyone she would like a snake for her birthday.

    Anita literally wants a snake for her birthday.

    A sentence featuring a simile with the word snake - The kite string was wrapped around the branch like a snake.

    This is a simile because it uses the word like to compare the kite string to a snake.

    A sentence featuring a metaphor with the word snake - Todd was a snake in the grass, waiting for a chance to strike.

    A metaphor compares two things without using like or as. In this sentence Todd is being compared to a snake.
