Wolf, Lilla. 1999. Najnowsze tendencje w nauczaniu slownictwa-wszechstronnosc metafor w jezyku codziennym (The most recent trends in vocabulary instruction - The versatility of metaphor in colloquial language). 4 pp.


The lexical component in language production and comprehension activities is examined with special attention to English as a second language teaching and learning. Drawing on G. Lakoff and M. Johnson's 'Metaphors We Live By '(1980), a vocabulary teaching technique based on metaphor sets is outlined, following a brief discussion of the notion of the metaphor in cognitive semantics and its occurrence in colloquial English.
