Maia Chkheidze,Revaz Tabatadze
The paper focuses on the problem of teaching and learning political metaphors and focuses on the mentioned problem from a cross-cultural perspective. The results of the survey carried out among Georgian English learner students provide valuable insights into how Georgian English learner students perceive the reality and conceptualize political processes.The way we perceive the reality is differently realized in different languages, in other words, different languages diversely segment the reality. World view is a culture, knowledge and experience-based interpretation resulting from the subjective perception and conceptualization of the reality.The findings of the survey carried out among Georgian English learner students suggest that learners usually give adequate interpretation to the elements with the high degree of usage and significant cross-cultural correspondence.The method of application of the expectancy violation effect in teaching and learning political metaphors is emerging in this paper as an effective tool that is capable of providing serious assistance to both teachers and students.
Keywords: Political metaphors, subjective perception, conceptualization, expectancy violation.
