Analogies: 2


Episode 48

The USLawEssentials Law & Language podcast continues its new series on analogies. In this series, your hosts, Stephen Horowitz and Daniel Edelson, don’t actually talk about law and legal English vocabulary. Instead, they discuss how international students & attorneys can improve their legal English vocabulary and analytical skills by practicing and explaining analogies.  

Today’s episode features an analogy from the SAT exam, a standardized test high school students typically take as part of their college applications. 

Baiting hook : Fishing :: ____:hunting (Baiting a hook is to Fishing as something is to Hunting) and the answer choices are:

    • Loading gun
    • Firing gun
    • Stalking gun
    • Aiming gun

Let us know whether practicing with analogies helps your study of legal English!
