The papers in this volume deal with the issue of how corpus data relate to
the questions that cognitive linguists have typically investigated with
respect to conceptual mappings. The authors in this volume investigate a
wide range of issues - the coherence and function of particular
metaphorical models, the interaction of form and meaning, the
identification of source domains of metaphorical expressions, the
relationship between metaphor and discourse, the priming of metaphors, and
the historical development of metaphors.
The studies deal with a variety of metaphorical and metonymic source and
target domains, including the source domains SPACE, ANIMALS, BODY PARTS,
ORGANIZATIONS and WAR, and the target domains VERBAL ACTIVITY, ECONOMY,
EMOTIONS and POLITICS. In their studies, the authors present a variety of
corpus-linguistic methods for the investigation of conceptual mappings, for
example, corpora annotated for semantic categories, concordances of
individual source-domain items and patterns, and concordances of
In sum, the papers in this volume show how a wide range of
corpus-linguistic methods can be used to investigate a variety of issues in
cognitive linguistics; the combination of corpus methods with a
cognitive-linguistic view of metaphor and metonymy yields new answers to
old questions (and to new questions) about the relationship between
language as a conceptual phenomenon and language as a textual phenomenon.
