The journal Metaphor and the Social World aims to provide a forum for
researchers to share with each other, and with potential research users,
work that explores aspects of metaphor and the social world. The term
“social world” signals the importance given to context (of metaphor use),
to connections (e.g. across social, cognitive and discourse dimensions of
metaphor use), and to communication (between individuals or across social
groups). The journal is not restricted to a single disciplinary or
theoretical framework but welcomes papers based in a range of theoretical
approaches to metaphor, including discourse and cognitive linguistic
approaches, provided that the theory adequately supports the empirical
work. Metaphor may be dealt with as either a matter or language or of
thought, or of both; what matters is that consideration is given to the
social and discourse contexts in which metaphor is found. Furthermore,
“metaphor” is broadly interpreted and articles are welcomed on metonymy and
other types of figurative language. A further aim is to encourage the
development of high-quality research methodology using metaphor as an
investigative tool, and for investigating the nature of metaphor use, for
example multi-modal discourse analytic or corpus linguistic approaches to
metaphor data. The journal publishes various types of articles, including
reports of empirical studies, key articles accompanied by short responses,
reviews and meta-analyses with commentaries. The Forum section publishes
short responses to papers or current issues.
