Metaphors - An Annotated Dictionary - A Concise Overview of 3800 Picturesque Idiomatic Expressions normally used Subconsciously, N. E. Renton
14 N. E. Renton Metaphors - An Annotated Dictionary - A Concise Overview of 3800 Picturesque Idiomatic Expressions normally used Subconsciously
Schwartz & Wilkinson 247479 Australia 1990 1863370196 / 9781863370196 Softcover Good Condition The modern English language is remarkably full of metaphors. These occur constantly in ordinary conversation, in newspapers, on radio and on television, as well as in more serious literature. Metaphors improve speech and writing by conveying shades of meaning more succinctly than ordinary phrases. This fascinating book discusses the subject in some detail. An entertaining introduction leads into a dictionary of metaphors, a thematic section and a thesaurus. It contains some 17,000 alphabetical entries listing over 4,000 different metaphors commonly found in current use and setting out their meanings in an easily read and popular style. This handy word-book with its highly original format will appeal to all lovers of language, as well as to writers, editors, publishers, students, migrants and those engaged in public speaking. It also provides raw material for many specialist applications, including party games, advertising copy, church sermons, English as a 2nd language and crossword puzzles. Some fascinating Australian phrases are also presented. The book, which is the only specialist work focusing exclusively on metaphors, also contains a short discussion of metaphors derived from religious sources. It features numerous metaphors from the Bible with their citations, showing that for better or worse current English has been influenced by the words of believers. 550 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Reference::Dictionary; Reference; ISBN: 1863370196. ISBN/EAN: 9781863370196.
