5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and insightful, 9 Nov 2011
This review is from: Metaphor: A Practical Introduction (Paperback)
This book is extremely clear. However in the clarity, the content is not oversimplified, but the clarity adds to an insightful understanding of the material. As someone interested by the topic, but not knowing anything about it, I found it enjoyable, helpful and thought provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars magical metaphors, 11 April 2011
This review is from: Metaphor: A Practical Introduction (Paperback)
A great book! It is an inevitable piece of professional literature for professional linguists, linguistics students and English teachers interested in taking up the challenges and exploring opportunities provided by linguistic metaphors in ELT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Several perspectives on conceptual metaphor, 15 Aug 2009
By 
Pedro Guedes (Portugal) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
The title of the book should be "Conceptual metaphor" (it would be more exact). Despite its pragmatic, academic tone (somehow boring for a literature Lover), the work performs what every essay should perform: it incites you to continue the thought process.
