Abstract:
			
In a stimulating and novel approach, this book explains why metaphors
are persuasive, suggesting that they are ideologically effective
because they are cognitively plausible and evoke an emotional
response. 'Critical Metaphor Analysis' is then developed in a series
of corpus-based studies in which analysis of collocations provides
insight into the cognitive motivation and expressive connotation of
metaphor. By unifying traditional and cognitive semantic with
pragmatic approaches, the reader becomes aware of the importance of
metaphor in persuasive language.
