Miri, Marveh; Soori, Afshin
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v6 n2 p160-162 Apr 2015
Learning a second language for Iranian students may not be simple at all parts, and it may be difficult for them, especially in some parts that is different from their first language principles. One of these parts is Metaphor, which is different in most languages according to their culture and history. This article is a kind of comparative study which aimed to describe some differences between English and Persian interpretation of animal metaphor. We have three categorizations for animal metaphors and different examples according to cultures of both languages.
