A Critical Evaluation of the Role of Conceptual Metaphor in Personal Theory Interpretation
Languages of publication
In this pilot study, a group of students were asked to generate metaphors on the role of the teacher and the learner and learning and teaching. Then the questionnaire data were compared with student metaphors elicited in oral interviews. The results suggest that sentence completion does not reflect informants’ true convictions, and that in contrast to theoretical assumptions, novel metaphors seem to be more consistent than conventional metaphors.
