The editor of the new book series Metaphor in Language, Cognition and
Communication invites submissions for book proposals on metaphor from
scholars working in the humanities and the cognitive or social sciences.
Book manuscripts on related phenomena such as analogy, metonymy, irony and
humor may also be proposed, provided they can be seen as related to
mainstream interdisciplinary research on metaphor.

Inquiries and submissions can be sent via email to:

Or by regular post to:

Metaphor in Language, Cognition, and Communication
Editor: Gerard J. Steen, VU University Amsterdam
ISSN: 2210-4836

The aim of the series is to publish theoretical and empirical
interdisciplinary research on the effective use of metaphor in language and
other modalities (including, for instance, visuals) for general or specific
cognitive and communicative purposes. The series also invites proposals
for inter-cultural and cross-cultural studies of metaphor in language,
cognition, and communication. Room will be given as well to publications on
related phenomena, such as analogy, metonymy, irony, and humor, as long as
they are approached from a comparable perspective.

The scope of series comprises approaches from the humanities and the social
and cognitive sciences, including philosophy, cultural studies,
linguistics, cognitive science, communication science, media studies, and
discourse analysis. More focused attention may be paid to the role of
metaphor in the domains of religion, literature and the arts, the media,
politics, organization and management, law, economics, health, education,
and science.
