Feedback form is now closed.
The session highlights how metaphor can be employed to deliver covert multi-layered messages. A scene from the TV drama Madmen is used to illustrate how persuasive this linguistic device can be and why this has implications for the teaching of English. Intended audience: cognitive linguists, curriculum designers and teachers.
