Teaching Idioms.
Cooper, Thomas C.
Foreign Language Annals, v31 n2 p255-66 Sum 1998
Because idioms are figurative expressions that do not mean what they literally state and since they are so frequently encountered in both oral and written discourse, comprehending and producing idioms present language learners with a special vocabulary learning problem. This article summarizes research findings and presents a systematic plan for teaching idioms to native-language learners, bilingual students, and foreign-language learners. (Author/VWL)
