The Judiciary's Use of Metaphors, Metonymies and Other Tropes to Give First Amendment Protection to Students and Teachers.
Bosmajian, Haig
Journal of Law and Education, v15 n4 p439-63 Fall 1986
Reviews use of "figurative" language by Supreme Court justices in court decisions relating to First Amendment rights of students and teachers. Outlines how use of metaphor, metonomy, and other tropes has led to expressions in judicial opinions that have been used repeatedly in constitutional defenses. Discusses dangers and strengths of this reliance on metaphors for determination of legal principles. (MD)
