I think it could be “personification” but I’m not sure enough to say it definitely is, hence the question.

  • Giving Animals Human Characteristics

  • It’s anthropomorphism

  • It is most definitely personification, nothing else. I’ve had to read a novel every year in English class regarding personification, and I will tell you right now that you are correct with your own assumption.

  • it is personification giving life to in animate objects

  • easy, the word is “humanize”

    . To portray or endow with human characteristics or attributes; make human

  • ‘Personification’ is the correct word “well done”.
