Metaphor
Introduction to metaphor as a semantic phenomenon. We will explain the semantic mecanisms on which metaphor is based by introducing the main speculations on the matter and offering exemples issued from litterary texts.
The courses will be supported by the AVAC e-learning platform (http://elearning.univr.it). Students can access the platform and register their account using the same user-id and password as for other online university services (e-mail etc.)

Oral interview. Students (either attending or not attending the lessons) will have to present a proposition of “exposé” by the end of May. This delay must be respected whenever they intend to pass the exam (June, September or February). Not attending students will have to contact the Professor in great advance in order to agree the subject of the “exposé”.
