¿Cómo te hablas a ti mismo?

Este mes de septiembre que está llegando a su fin hablé, en mi columna de Letras Libres, del lenguaje interno con el que nos hablamos a nosotros mismos. Espero que os resulte interesante.

    • New advances in the development of figurative competence and/or of a particular figurative use of language (metaphors, idioms, ironies, etc.). Studies using linguistic corpora with one or several kinds of figurative statements.
    • Educational or clinical applications of proposals, programmes or strategies to improve skills in the processing of different figurative uses, aimed at populations with pragmatic difficulties.
