Be My Brain!

I need your help, blogglings.

I'm trying to find a word.  I know this word.  I remember doing an entire unit on the concept in high school English.  But the word has fallen out of my head, and it's been driving me crazy!

I want the word that means "to give human characteristics to a non-human being or object."

I know it's not personification. I know it's not transmogrification.  I think it might be a trans- word though.

If you know this word, would you please tell me?

Thanks!

anthropomorphism? It was the definition you stated but the fourth one down at dictionary.com so I'm not sure it's really that.

I agree with Joe. So does my handbook to literature. =)

I'm pretty sure it is personification.
