Item Type:Article
Additional Information:The article explores the potential of the cognitive linguistic notions (e.g. conceptual metaphor and conceptual metonym) for comparing and anticipating learner difficulty with English and Malay figurative expressions. A model is proposed from both formal linguistic and conceptual differences and similarities between figurative expressions in these two languages; it is based on empirical data collected from Malay learners of English figurative expressions. The article is cited by others concerned with the second language learning of metaphors and idioms.
