Item description for Metaphor and Metonymy at the Crossroads: A Cognitive Perspective (Topics in English Linguistics, No. 30) (Topics in English Linguistics) by Antonio Barcelona...
The volume is a collection of essays, most of them written from a cognitive linguistics standpoint by leading specialists in the fields of conceptual metaphor and metonomy, and conceptual integration (blending). The book has two main goals. One of them is to discuss in new, provocative ways the nature of these mappings in English and their interaction (e.g. the papers by Barcelona, Feyaerts, Kvecses, Radden, Ruiz de Mendoza, or Turner and Fauconnier). The other goal is to explore by means of several detailed case studies the central role of these mappings in English: in its semantics (including semantic change), in its grammar, and in the structuring discourse (e.g. the papers by Freeman, Goossens, Haser, Niemeier, Pelyvs, or Panther and Thornburg, Ponteretto, Ungerer). The book includes an introduction and a subject index.
Of interest to students and researchers in English and theoretical linguistics, in English literature, in cognitive psychology and in cognitive science.
