A figure of speech is an expression in which the words are used, but not in their literal sense, to create a more forceful or dramatic meaning. They are often in the form of metaphors, similes and hyperbole. “A fountain of knowledge,” is a good example. “Stretching the truth,” is another.
With Figuratively Speaking, we finally have a thesaurus to discover these phrases’ origins and the sources of their meanings. Categories include:
Body Types
Creature Comforts
Letting Loose
Life, Health, & Death
Personal Space
Personality Types
Thinking Power
Trouble, Turmoil, & Commotion
The World of Work

Whether reading it for fun, researching phrases you use, or studying the symbolic foundations of our language, Figuratively Speaking is the resource you’ll reach for time and again.

Written in a style accessible to teachers and student teachers, it introduces sociocultural perpectives on identity, classroom and community practices, helping and transformative possibilities, using teacher narratives to reflect the complexity of classroom decision-making and reflective action.

    Keeping a journal is a very useful path towards self-improvement. However, this is only when journaling becomes a habit, and not something that is done just once. Essentially, journaling works its wonders because the habit “forces” people to spend time on themselves. Turning your attention to your own thoughts creates a therapeutic activity, giving you time to reflect and heal. It can also he improve your thought and behavior, giving you realizations that may be overlooked as you go through the humdrum of daily life.
