Title: Sinnbilder für Sprache [Images for Language. Metaphorical Alternatives to the Terminology-based Interpretation of Language]
Subtitle: Metaphorische Alternativen zur begrifflichen Erschließung von Sprache
Written By: Wilhelm Köller
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/180115?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 109
Description:

Everybody is familiar with language, but this certainly does not mean that
everybody has a sufficient understanding of language. Usually we try to
objectivize our knowledge of language by using terminology. In the process we
easily forget that language can also be concretized revealingly by means of
images or symbols. This form of objectivization is particularly suitable for
grasping the diverse and pragmatic potential functions of language. Moreover,
images can also provide good access to the substructures of our terminology-
based knowledge of language.
