Anthropomorphism in the Prologue of Chaucer's Cantabury Tales Part 2

3. Is there a term for zoomorphism paralleling itself? “He had greyhounds as swift as fowl in flight,” or would that fall under transgression because of the hierarchy of the food chain? 4. If anthropomorphism is the likeness of the outside to humans, is there a term for expressing likeness of humans to humans, say humaniodorphism or homomorphism, both of which I made up? 5. If the reverse of when anthropomorphism is used, is it just called reverse anthropomorphism? 6. If a characteristic of a person is compared to another, what is that called? Or can we just say it’s metonymy or syecdoche?
