What is the Spanish word for "conceit" (literary term)?
It's an extended metaphor.
There are a lot of them. If you can't tell the difference by looking in the dictionary I'll pick them out for you.
conceit: sustantivo 1. engreimiento (m) presuntuosidad (f) (vanity)
Amor propio, presunción, arrogancia, alto concepto de sí mismo, engreimiento
vanidad pedantería, soberbia, orgullo, vanagloria, petulancia, jactancia, envanecimiento, altivez, altanería, fatuidad, presunción, engreimiento
Thanks for replying. I don't mean "conceit" as a synonym for "arrogance"...I was wondering if there was a similar word in Spanish for the poetry term (an extended metaphor). I can probably just use metáfora. Thanks!
