More Things, Horatio: Metaphorical Thinking for Second-Language Writers

Aktivitet: Typer för tal eller presentation!!Oral presentation


How do L2 learners of English formulate metaphor, and how can they be supported in metaphoric thinking? A creative writing workshop for advanced learners of English is a good place to observe this process in action. Language learning itself impels the learner out of conventional paths of thought and engenders promising conditions for creativity. This presentation explores how those conditions can best be taken advantage of to encourage L2 creative writers not only to partially reconceive their world but also to produce work in English that can expand our L1 conceptions.
