19 1 Chapter 7 Living, Dying and Time Metaphors One reason there are so many Latin and Greek words for birth, life, and death is that the Christian missionaries from Rome carried these root words to the New World. When metaphors become firmly established, speakers use them as the basis for new metaphors. These are what we call “second- generation metaphors.” (Nilsen & Nilsen 159)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
