Abstract: Metaphor in Learner English by Susan Nacey is a detailed comparative corpus- based study of metaphorical expressions by advanced learners of English and native English-speaking students. The book, which is structured in three parts, devotes Part I to an analysis of the theoretical foundations of metaphor and its de- scription in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR; Council of Europe 2009). Part II provides a detailed description of the Metaphor Identification Procedure (MIP) and its contributions to the systematic identifica- tion and analysis of metaphor in learners' texts. Finally, part III offers a quan- titative examination of learner corpus data, explores and refines the controver- sial concept of creativity and addresses the relation between novelty and error in learners' metaphorical language.
