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 metonymy, and conceptual integration
(blending). The book has two main goals. One of them is to discuss in
new, provocative ways the nature of these conceptual mappings in
English and their interaction. The other goal is to explore by means
of several detailed case studies the central role of these mappings in
English. The studies are, thus, concerned with the operation of
metaphor and metonymy in discourse, including literary discourse or
with the effect of metaphorical and/or metonymic mappings on some
aspects of linguistic structure, be it polysemy or grammar. The book
includes an introduction and a subject index. It will be of interest
for students and researchers in English and linguistics, English
literature, cognitive psychology and cognitive science.
