23 May – Maryam Saneie Moghadam
Maryam is a PhD student of applied linguistics in Tarbiat Modares University of Tehran. She holds a deep interest in cognitive linguistics, metaphor theories and second language acquisition with a goal to devote her professional research carrier towards understanding the intricate dynamics of language, culture, and cognition. Her PhD project mainly aims at presenting a comparative picture of forms and functions of metaphors in the written academic discourse of native and non-native speakers of English. During her stay at the Metaphor Lab, she has mainly zoomed in on drafting the method chapter under the supervision of Gerard Steen. The highly interactive research environment of Metaphor Lab provided her with both the opportunity to work toward the completion of data collection and data analysis of her project and a better grasp of the most fundamental aspects of metaphor research and cognitive linguistics.
