Dear Forum Users,
I am writing an essay and I want to say that we do not need to know that, for instance, 'This surgeon is a butcher' is a metaphor (or whatever), we understand the meaning.
Can I say:
"These figures of speech need not be named in order for them to operate in meaning construction"?
Is 'in order for them to' technically possible in the original post?
I suppose you could say "Metaphors do not be named/identified/labeled in order for them to be understood".
How about this one:
Metaphors should not be named so that people could understand them.?
Is the part in bold correct?
