Figurative Language in Students' Writings.
Devet, Bonnie
Freshman English News, v17 n1 p24-26 Fall 1988
Argues that textbooks give little specific advice on the role of figures in discourse, while theorists extol their virtues, leaving instructors torn. Claims that, by examining students' writing, teachers can discover how students employ figures and how figures can be taught. Illustrates with examples of students' writing. (RS)
