Abstract:

Metaphor is a topical issue across a number of disciplines, wherever
researchers are concerned with how speakers and writers package and process
messages. This book is addressed at readers from diverse academic
backgrounds who are interested in ways of researching metaphor from
different perspectives, and especially through corpus linguistics.

A number of approaches to and exploitations of metaphor, including
conceptual metaphor theory and cognitive approaches more generally, text
and spoken discourse analysis, and CDA, are discussed, explored and
critiqued using corpus data. The book also includes corpus linguistic
studies of different aspects of metaphor, which investigate its linguistic
and semantic properties and relate them to current theoretical views. The
book demonstrates the need for naturally-occurring language data to be used
in the development of metaphor theory, and shows the value of corpus data
and techniques in this work.
