Title: Finding Metaphor in Grammar and Usage
Subtitle: A methodological analysis of theory and research
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CELCR%2010
Series Title: Converging Evidence in Language and Communication Research 10
Description:

Cognitive linguists have proposed that metaphor is not just a matter of
language but of thought, and that metaphorical thought displays a high
degree of conventionalization. In order to produce converging evidence for
this theory of metaphor, a wide range of data is currently being studied
with a large array of methods and techniques. Finding Metaphor in
Grammar and Usage
aims to map the field of this development in theory
and research from a methodological perspective. It raises the question when
exactly evidence for metaphor in language and thought can be said to count
as converging. It also goes into the various stages of producing such
evidence (conceptualization, operationalization, data collection and
analysis, and interpretation). The book offers systematic discussion of
eight distinct areas of metaphor research that emerge as a result of
approaching metaphor as part of grammar or usage, language or thought, and
symbolic structure or cognitive process.
