Viva Notes

Probably the best stretch of notes from my Viva. Sa and A are the examiners, St is me.
Sa           I’m less interested in metaphor than in community; only interested in it to the extent that it affects people. But how does one decide that as a linguist?
A            Entering into the field of metaphor studies requires this.
St            I don’t want to be a metaphor theorist.
