Saya mau memberi contoh kata Buaya termasuk metafora tidak?

kalimatnya
1. Buaya itu sedang berenang
Artinya buaya disini adalah hewan

2. Dasar, kamu buaya!!!!
Artinya buaya disini adalah ungkapan marah seseorang kepada pasanganya karena pasanganya tidak setia

in English "buaya" in that utterance means Playboy. However, is there any other interpretation for the word "buaya" in english which mean "unfaithfull" ?


Terima Kasih.

I agree with your metaphor example sentence. To answer your question, there is a metaphor from the word of crocodile for unfaithful. It is "crocodile tears" which mean unfaithful.
