Abstract:

In Contemporary Metaphor Theory (CMT) research has predominantly focused on
the English language with few studies of others and even less systematic
comparative work. This volume focuses on the discourse domain of LEARNING
(formal, technical and informal aspects) and brings together a variety of
language perspectives, some specifically comparative, on aspects of
learning from historical transformations in metaphoric language use through
contemporary social values and classroom discourse to planning for the
future in educational policy to see how conceptual metaphoric patterns and
conventional metaphors with related figurative language impact on social
values and culturally conditioned perspectives in learning. Most papers
reflect Lakoffian conceptual metaphoric research including critical
evaluation of analytical issues. Languages included are Arabic, Chinese,
English, Hungarian, Japanese, Malay, Polish, Russian and the South African
language area. Most papers utilize extensive data including such genre as
technical writing, essays, conversational interaction, newspaper corpus and
proverbs.
