Metaphor and Age
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I have a student who wants to write a paper on the use of metaphor among adult
writers, specifically about whether usage changes with age. Neither of us has
been able to find any previous studies dealing with a potential correlation
between age and the use of metaphor - other than studies dealing with the
development of metaphor in children (my student is only interested in adults'
What I'd like to know, then, is simply whether there have been any studies like
this at all?
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!
