|Title of Research||Conceptual metaphor in ELT as key to language competence? An empirical study in the school context.|
|Program of Study||PhD in English Linguistics|
|Research Interests||I am interested in the influence of explicit conceptual metaphor teaching on the language competence of foreign language learners in the school context - especially with regard to the effective use of vocabulary and flexibility/creativity in language use. Classroom material and tests are developed for the purpose of my study and a common rating grid for assessing writing proficiency is adapted for the evaluation of the pupils´ written language production.
Further, I am interested in metaphor in intercultural communication and neural aspects of metaphor.
