Danesi, Marcel; D'Alfonso, Aldo
Italica, v66 n1 p9-19 Spr 1989
Describes a "Vichian" approach (involving linguistic imagination and creativity) to the exploration of basic pedagogical matters in classroom language teaching. The approach is based on principles involving: (1) concrete language knowledge; (2) development from the concrete to the abstract; (3) the role of metaphor in verbal creativity; and (4) language learning along the path of language ontogenesis.
