Metaphors and Prototypes in the Teaching and Learning of Grammar and Vocabulary.
MacLennan, Carol H. G.
IRAL, v32 n2 p97-110 1994
Considers how metaphor's central position in the structure of language, its contribution to concept development, and its cognitive functions endow it with properties uniquely combined to assist in the learning of grammar and vocabulary. Frames of reference based on metaphor are well placed to simplify instruction and encourage learner independence. (50 references) (MDM)
