Abstract:

This volume presents results from a corpus-based investigation into the
metaphorical production of foreign language learners, comparing texts written
by Norwegian (L2) learners of English with those written by British (L1)
students. Three types of questions are addressed. The first has empirically
measured answers: For example, do L2 English writers produce more metaphors
than L1 novice writers? How frequent are novel metaphors in an L2, as compared
with an L1? The second type has more subjective answers: How creatively do L2
English learners employ metaphor? Are they even expected to be able to produce
metaphor at all? The third type combines theoretical and methodological
perspectives: How is metaphorical creativity identified? What is the potential
role of metaphoric competence? Most importantly, how are metaphors identified?
To this end, the newly-developed ‘Metaphor Identification Procedure’ is tested
and critiqued. This book is intended for metaphor researchers, corpus
linguists, applied linguists and language educators.
