Relation of Cognitive Style to Metaphor Interpretation and Second Language Proficiency.
Johnson, Janice; Rosano, Teresa
Applied Psycholinguistics, v14 n2 p159-75 Jun 1993
Administered tests of cognition, language, and metaphor interpretation to 3 groups of 15 students: native English speakers (NESs) and 2 groups of students in an English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) course. ESL students performed less well than NESs on decontextualized measures of vocabulary and verbal analogies but equally well on measures derived from a metaphor interpretation task.
