This book contains a selection of refereed and revised papers
originally presented at the 5th ICLC. After an introduction by the
editors, the book opens with a long-needed chapter on historical
precedents for the Cognitive Linguistic theory of metaphor. Two
chapters demonstrate the method of lexical analysis of linguistic
metaphors and how it can be fruitfully applied to a characterization
of the conceptual domains of smell and economics. Three chapters deal
with theoretical aspects of conceptual metaphor, one of which is a
commissioned chapter on the relation between conceptual metaphor
theory and conceptual blending. Finally there are five chapters
presenting novel theoretical issues and empirical findings about the
relation between conceptual metaphor and culture. This book is hence a
wide-ranging sample of current approaches to metaphor in Cognitive
Linguistics, with some chapters breaking new grounds for future
