Abstract:

Metaphor is recognised as an important way of thinking - constructing
analogies and making connections between ideas - and an important way of
using language - to explain abstract ideas or to find indirect but powerful ways
of conveying feelings. By investigating people's use of metaphors, we can
better understand their emotions, attitudes and conceptualisations, as
individuals and as participants in social life. This book describes practice in
the analysis of metaphor in real-world discourse.

When real-world language use is taken as the site of metaphor study,
researchers face methodological issues that have only recently begun to be
addressed. The contributors to this volume have all had to find ways to deal
with methodological issues in their own research and have developed
techniques that are brought together here. Using as a basis the discourse
dynamics approach to metaphor developed by the editor, the book explores
links between theory and empirical investigation, exemplifies data analysis
and discusses issues in research design and practice. Particular attention is
paid to the processes of metaphor identification, categorisation and labelling,
and to the use of corpus linguistic and other computer-assisted methods.
