Elementary School Teachers' Use of Multiple Meaning Expressions.
Lazar, Rhea Tregabov; And Others
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v20 n4 p420-30 Oct 1989
This examination of the frequency of occurrence of multiple meaning expressions in the oral speech of teachers found that such expressions as indirect requests, idioms, similes, metaphors, and irony were used in about 36 percent of all utterances by two different teachers at each grade level from K-eight. Implications for language-impaired children are discussed. (Author/JDD)
