Glasgow University has launched a new online resource and apps called ‘Metaphor in the Curriculum’.
“This ‘Metaphor in the Curriculum’ (MetaphorIC) website contains teaching materials, metaphor quizzes and a version of the Metaphor Map, which gives an overview of metaphor across the whole of the English language. The website can be used alongside the MetaphorIC app, which is available for Android at Google Play and for Apple at the App Store. The app can be used offline and has all the features of the website other than the downloadable teaching materials”
The metaphor quizzes and teaching materials for students look particularly useful for those studying English. The visualisation tool is an entertaining overview of the metaphorical connections in English.
