Abstract:

Encouraging readers to reflect upon language and the role metaphor plays in
patterning ideas and thought, this book first offers a critical introduction to
metaphor theory as it has emerged over the past thirty years in the States.
James W. Underhill then widens the scope of metaphor theory by
investigating not only the worldview our language offers us, but also the
worldviews which we adapt in our own ideological and personal interpretations
of the world.

This book explores new avenues in metaphor theory in the work of
contemporary French, German and Czech scholars. Detailed case studies
marry metaphor theory with discourse analysis in order to investigate the
ways the Czech language was reshaped by communist discourse, and the
way fascism emerged in the German language. The third case study turns
metaphor theory on its head: instead of looking for metaphors in language, it
describes the way language systems (French & English) are understood in
terms of metaphorically-framed concepts evolving over time.

Including a multilingual glossary of key terms and concepts, this is an ideal
volume for anyone new to the topic, as well as those already interested in
metaphor theory and the analysis of worldviews.
