What is a metaphor?
A metaphor [ˈmetəfər] compares two people or two things by saying that one thing is another thing. For example, Paul is a fool.
In the past in Europe, a fool was a person who entertained the king or queen by doing silly things. The fool was a kind of clown. He often did crazy or stupid things to make people laugh. So when we call somebody a fool we really mean that he or she is doing something silly or stupid. We do not really mean that they are somebody who entertains the king or queen.
The students in 2nd year G have revised their understanding of metaphors and come up with wonderful metaphors…
