Commentary: Snow 2007: "Two points are made: figures of speech are relatively rare (p. 5) but they seem to be a natural part of the Galician idiom, described as onomatopoetic and imagistic in nature (p. 8). The examples cover a wide range of daily activities, sounds, and images expressed in simile and metaphor which, taken together, give a vivid portrait of some important aspects of thirteenth-century reality."
