Figurative language uses words or expressions that go beyond the literal meaning of words to get the message across. Although direct language is easier to understand, in some instances we respond better to more creative wording. For example, writers like to use figurative language to build imagery and give words more power. Idioms are considered some of the highest levels of language processing and some students with language impairments struggle with understanding the meaning of these figurative language.
