I learned a lot this week. The first thing that stands out the most is using metaphors. The second thing that stands out the most is Machine Metaphor.
We all use metaphors in our every day life. Sometimes we don’t know it. Other times we use it often. For example, “ The light of my life.” It means someone who brings joy or happiness. Another example is, “Bubbly personality.” It means someone who is cheerful. A metaphor is use to expressed your feelings to better understand what the other person is trying to say to that person.
I learned that Machine Metaphor is a comparison to simple version. I was very fastened when I learned that when you use Machine Metaphor, you’re saying, “Treating people like parts.” It’s true because when I heard that metaphor, I think of factory workers. They are in the factories building things. People also do the same routine over and over again. They wake up, do their routine, go to sleep, and start all over again the next day.
