Abstract:

In recent years, conceptual metonymy has been recognized as a
cognitive phenomenon that is as fundamental as metaphor for reasoning
and the construction of meaning. The thoroughly revised chapters in
the present volume originated as presentations in a workshop organized
by the editors for the 7th International Pragmatics Conference held in
Budapest in 2000. They constitute, according to an anonymous reviewer,
"an interesting contribution to both cognitive linguistics and
pragmatics." The contributions aim to bridge the gap, and encourage
discussion, between cognitive linguists and scholars working in a
pragmatic framework. Topics include the metonymic basis of explicature
and implicature, the role of metonymically-based inferences in speech
act and discourse interpretation, the pragmatic meaning of grammatical
constructions, the impact of metonymic mappings on and their
interaction with grammatical structure, the role of metonymic
inferencing and implicature in linguistic change, and the comparison
of metonymic principles across languages and different cultural
settings.
