Abstract : Regardless of the extensive amount of research carried out into figurative language, the implications for L2 pedagogy are far from clear. Although the idea of teaching metaphorical expressions in L1 or L2 is not new, what makes this study different is the question of the role of L3 in this regard. This dissertation reports on a study carried out to scrutinize the difference in learning body-part idiomatic expressions among multilingual and bilingual Persian students of English (L2) and German (L3) to see whether people with an L3 benefit from their L1 or L2 in learning the expressions of their L3 and to examine the impact of each language on the other one through measuring the reaction time of each learner as well. The research proceeded with a number of questions, three hypotheses, two pretests (English and German), and appropriate statistical analyses, such as correlation, paired and independent sample t tests. First, 60 Iranian Persian-speaker students, who were majoring in the third and last years of English Translation and German Translation at the University of Isfahan, were singled out and classified into two groups of 30 intermediate and upper-intermediate multilinguals and 30 bilinguals from among a total number of 93 through the administration of a short Oxford Placement Test (OPT) and a German placement test (Einstufungs Test). They were of roughly the same age range (18-22) including both sexes, predominantly female. Next, they took part in a study of a five-month period in which they were exposed to and taught about body-part metaphorical expressions in context in English and German using Danesi's bimodality theory. Finally, in order to check the effectiveness of the method and the role and impact of each language in this process as well as obtain the desired data to analyze, the reaction times of the participants were measured. And, based on the results of the correlations and paired and independent sample t tests, it was revealed that the metaphorical competence in L1 helped the development of metaphorical competence in multilinguals to a large extent. Also, the metaphorical competence in L2 helped the development of metaphorical competence in L3 to some extent and last but not least, the prior processing of L1 lexical items can decrease the reaction time for the metaphorical processing in L3 and L2-L3 metaphorical link. That is, L2 and L3 lexical items can use L1 lexicon in a different way..
