  • Interesting that the ‘building’ metaphor doesn’t quite fit language acquisition. There’s a well-established metaphorical link between ‘achieving’ something (typically over a long period – like learning a language) and the idea of building something. We often talk about ‘building up’ a business or ‘laying the foundations’ for future success etc, There is more about this in the ‘Metaphor Box‘ at the dictionary’s entry for achieve: . Looking forward to your next thoughts on this subject!
