A part of speech -- eight -- defines the classification of a word. . For example, is a verb, house is a noun, and so on. A figure of speech is a phrase emphasis that it is not real. . For example, "eat like a horse' does not mean that the person eats standing on his four legs, with chin in trough munching on oats. That figure of speech means that the person consumes more than average amounts of food. So a figure of speech is not a part of speech in the sense implied by your question. Another answer: "the Figure of the voice" is a phrase.
