Title of ResearchRevenge of the Schwa: A Metaphor for Teaching English Word Stress in Academic Vocabulary
Program of StudyPhD in Educational Linguistics
Research Interests I am interested in instruction through metaphor, especially for teaching science, math, and abstract concepts in foreign language learning and linguistics. I am beginning to review the literature concerning Metaphorical Competence in English Language Learners, and in the future I would like to explore possible connections between embodied reasoning and Total Physical Response (TPR) theory in second/foreign language teaching cross-culturally.
