Metaphor Comprehension by Language Learning Disabled and Normally Achieving Adolescent Boys.
Jones, Jacqueline; Stone, C. Addison
Learning Disability Quarterly, v12 n4 p251-60 Fall 1989
Sixteen language learning-disabled adolescents were able to provide fewer correct metaphor interpretations than 16 normally achieving adolescents. For both groups, metaphors were easier to interpret by paraphrase selection than by verbal explanation, and perceptual metaphors were easier to interpret than psychological metaphors. (Author/JDD)
