Conceptual Fluency Theory and Second-Language Teaching.
Danesi, Marcel; Mollica, Anthony
Mosaic: A Journal for Language Teachers, v5 n2 p1,3-12 Win 1998
Examines the conceptual fluency theory in second-language teaching, illustrating the concept and offering examples of its feasibility in several languages. The paper suggests that to ignore metaphor is to ignore a large segment of the native speaker's competence. It also makes suggestions for second-language teachers wishing to make conceptual fluency the primary focus of teaching. (SM)
