Introductory Unit 1: What is an lexicon? An lexicon is an expression with the following features: 1. It is fixed and recognized by native loudspeakers. You cannot make up your own! 2. It utilizes word in a non-literal- figurative- nature. The following are examples: 1. Tin up to my gazes in work at the moment. 2. At the gratify I felt a bit out of my depth. 3. I was over the moon when I hear she’d had twinneds! 4. It ended my mother’s middle to see her residence burn to the ground. If you are up to your eyes, you are very busy. If you are out of your magnitude, you might be in the sea, but you are more likely to be in a situation which you do not understand for some rationale. If you are over the moon, you are extremely happy about something. If something breaches your centre, you are very sad about it. In these precedents it is clear that the lexicon is a whole expression. This is the traditional end of jargons. But there is a lot more language which is idiomatic. For example, there are plenty of individual utterances with vernacular utilizations. On page 3 we find that catch has many more exploits than the literal one of catching a fish. Now are more specimen: Literal Implement Idiomatic Use 1. The river filled various villages. The audience submerge on to the pitch. 2. Batches of rubbish prepare everywhere. He’s got collections of money. 3. I love roast potatoes. Euthanasia. Now, that’s a very hot potato! 4. I’ve got an uncle at sea. I’m all at sea.
Task 1: Identify the jargons Underline the dialects and idiomatic expressions in the following sentences: 1. I’m feeling a bit under the weather this morning. 2. We arrived in the nick of time. 3. I know London like the back of my hand. 4. Do you think you could pluck a few cases fibres for me? 5. I couldn’t get a word in edgeways. 6. I’m fed up with the rat race. 7. My father made I would follow in his steps. 8. Hurry up! You’re cutting it a bit fine, aren’t you? 9. Let’s look on the bright side, shall we? 10. Come on. we can’t precisely sweep this under the carpet. We are familiar with the idea of heavy rain causing a flow to overflow and floodlight the surround locality; hordes are often described as water and the same verb flood is used. The literal represent of collection is a heap of something; batches of money, however, simply conveys lots of money. A hot potato is not for eating; it signifies a controversial issue. An uncle at sea works on a boat; if you are at sea, it means you are in a situation which you do not understand and where you cannot cope.
Idioms Organiser takes a broad view of lexicon. In this journal you will practise common styles such as the black sheep of the family, but you will too practise the huge area of vernacular utilization where messages are used with non-literal- metaphorical- meanings.
2: What is a metaphor? “It “ve been a little” of a hot potato. Metaphor exist in all languages. You use them in your own language. A allegory applies one hypothesi to stand for another idea. Above, we witnessed the simple theme: A mob is spray. When you have that project in your sentiment, the crowd can spurt, submerge, or percolate. Now are part and parcel of the common analogies practised in this book: 1. Duration is fund. We save age. We can spare 5 minutes. We can run out of time. 2. Business is fight. Announce is a minefield in which you have targets and keep your sights on what your competitors are doing. 3. Life is a journey. You can be on the road to recovery. You might be at a crossroads in your life because you are in a dead-end job.
Task 2: What’s the metaphor? Match the idiomatic expressions on the left( 1- 8) with the allegories on the right( a- h) 1. I simply can’t afford more than a week off. 2. You earn some, you lose some. 3. He had a constant series of pilgrims. 4. I meditate l’m in a rut. 5. Carry on. but keep your head down. 6. We re going to have to weather the cyclone. 7. He was a bit hazy about the amount. 8.I time don’t see the top. a. Moods are weather. b. A fellowship is a ship. c. Life is gambling. d. Beings are liquid. e. Seeing is understanding. f. Business is war. g. Time is fund. h. Life is a journey.
3: Why are lexicons and metaphors so important? Firstly, they are important because they are very common. It is impossible to speak, read, or listen to English without cros idiomatic communication. This is not something you can leave until you reach an advanced level. All native speaker English is idiomatic. Every newspaper is full of symbolic expression. You cannot avoid it or leave it till last-minute. The second reason is that very often the figurative call of a word is more common today than its literal application. For example, we know that farmers plough their plains, but you can plough through a long novel or report; you can plough on with your work; you are eligible to plough coin into a business; profits can be ploughed back into a company; a lorry can plough into a sequence of parked automobiles. Working plough in its literal farm intend is now much rarer than all its other non-literal implementations. But it is important for you to know the literal intend. Often the literal mean procreates a visualize in your intellect and this scene meets the other implications easier to understand.
4: Are dialects spoken or written English?
Both! Some people think that vernacular language is more informal and, therefore, common merely in sound English. This is not true. Idiomatic language is as fundamental to English as tenses or prepositions. If you listen to beings speaking, or if you read a novel or a newspaper, you will meet vernacular English in all situations.
