I am fascinated by metaphors.
Did you know that computers can't be programmed for metaphors and only persons can create metaphors?
Did you know that very young children don't understand metaphors and don't like them?
Did you know that a metaphor is a comparison of relationships?
Do you know that the structure of a metaphor is - As A is to B so C is to D?
And did you know that language metaphors are usually shortened so that the structure is invisible, such as Juliette is the Sun, or Victor is a parsnip.
And that you need to know the literal meaning before you can understand the metaphoric meaning?
And did you know that adolescents are more comfortable with visual metaphors than language metaphors?
Did you know that metaphors are waiting for you just as you are waiting for metaphors?
