Abstract:

How is the universal, yet private and subjective, experience of pain talked
about by different people in everyday encounters? What does the analysis of
pain-related lexico-phraseological choices, grammatical structures, and
linguistic metaphors reveal as to how pain is perceived and experienced?
Are pain utterances primarily used to express or to describe this
experiential domain? This is the first book that investigates such
questions from both a functional and a cognitive perspective: it combines
two converging usage-based theoretical models in a systematic linguistic
inquiry of the construal of pain in everyday language. This work is based
on a specialised electronic corpus of Greek naturally-occurring dialogues
in a health care context, the underlying assumption being that in the
absence of factual evidence intuition about language cannot reliably detect
or predict patterns of usage. Comparing Greek with English data, this book
significantly contributes to the development of this research field
cross-linguistically.
