Taken from my friends at The Linguist’s Curse: A “Principles of Linguistics” Fix, this funny illustration about figures of speech is a great Facebook or Instagram post allowing your friends and fellow word-lovers to add phrases they can identify. BUT this would also be a great discussion image for advanced learners, possibly scaffolded with a word-bank, and followed by
a task to define and use these figures of speech in context.
