Metaphor is not just a literary device. Rather, it is central to all communication. In this workshop, we'll take a practical look at some of the fundamental metaphorical principles underlying why particular words, phrases, phrasal verbs, idioms etc are used in English. We'll explore how recognising the patterns and principles behind them can help students make sense of some of the weirder and/or seemingly random aspects of lexis.
