E301A: The Art of English (I)
TMA: Semester 1, 2016 - 2017
TMA: 20 points
[Prepared by Course Chair: Dr. Yusuf Shudooh]
Discuss the notion of metaphor [metaphor and cultural knowledge, linguistic metaphors, conceptual metaphors, poetic metaphor, and cognitive metaphor] and explain why people use metaphor.
Enrich your discussions with examples from both English and your own language by using approximately 50% of each language. The meaning of the examples from your own language must be translated into English.
This TMA is to be written in between 1400 - 1500 words.
You must focus on at least three types of metaphor; you do not need to focus on all types.
The main source of study material for this topic is Chapter  ‘The Art of the Everyday’ and Reading C in the textbook The Art of English: everyday creativity.
There is also relevant material in the E301A Study Guide1 [Unit 1].
The accompanying CD-ROM Bands 1 & 2 are useful too.
The meaning of the examples from your own language must be translated into English.
You are encouraged to use relevant literature to support your responses.
Any other resources you find relevant in the E-library.
