Metaphoric Images from Abstract Concepts.
Vizmuller-Zocco, Jana
International Journal of Early Childhood, v24 n2 p23-25 1992
Discusses children's use of metaphors to create meaning, using as an example the pragmatic and "scientific" ways in which preschool children explain thunder and lightning to themselves. Argues that children are being shortchanged by modern scientific notions of abstractness and that they should be encouraged to create their own explanations of phenomena. (AC)
