Thank you!

So, in the title 'ironic' is not understood as a premodifier of 'dysfunction' as in 'an ironic statement/remark', for example. The title could be interpreted to refer to a paper 'about the difficulties people with schizophrenia encounter when interpreting irony'. Is that right?

Dear Friends,

I am writing a paper and need some help with the title. The study is about the difficulties people with schizophrenia encounter when interpreting irony. The title would be something like:

The Role of Blending in Explaining Ironic Dysfunction in Schizophrenia

However, in this title it feels as if 'dysfunction' would be ironic in its literal sense. Do you feel the same?

Thank you very much.

Have an A-1 day!

Dear Friends,

Could anyone please help me understand the part beginning with 'and so is':

Specific uses of metahor are worthy of study and so is the idea of metaphor as a cultural notion.

Does this mean that 'the idea of metaphor as a cultural notion' is also worthy of study?

Thank you!

Dear Friends,

Could anyone please help me with this:

Is 'it' necessary here:

As I see (it), metaphor is a versatile phenomenon.

Thank you!
