Message 2: Special Journal Issue on Cognitive Approaches to Metaphor

Date: Fri, 18 May 2001 11:42:45 -0500
From: Don Hardy <dhardyniu.edu>
Subject: Special Journal Issue on Cognitive Approaches to Metaphor


The editors of the journal Style invite essays for a special issue on 
cognitive approaches to metaphor and other figures of speech.
For this special issue, scheduled as volume 36, number 3 (Fall 2002), 
the editors plan to bring together essays from scholars in several 
fields, especially linguistics, rhetoric, and literary study. 
Contributions are welcome that involve either theoretical discussions of 
the powers and limitations of the cognitive approach or applications of 
it to figures of speech as they feature in literary works or other forms
of discourse. Essays appearing in the issue may be written with a 
specific linguistic, rhetorical, or literary audience in mind. That is, 
the essays need not be written for a general audience but may instead 
address an issue in conceptual or cognitive metaphor within the 
framework of the author's discipline.

If readers of this list know of any colleagues or students who would be 
likely contributors to this issue as well, the editors would appreciate 
their passing this information on to them. And they are certainly 
welcome to suggest names of others whom the editors might directly 
invite.

Essays should be 5,000 to 9,000 words. Please submit three copies,
accompanied by a 150-word abstract and following the Modern Language 
Association's conventions for documentation. The deadline for 
submissions is 15 January 2002.

Submissions or correspondence concerning submissions should be addressed 
to Donald E. Hardy, at dhardyniu.edu, or at Department of English, 
Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL 60115-2854.
