Title: Frames and Constructions in Metaphoric Language
Written By: Karen Sullivan
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/cal.14
Series Title: Constructional Approaches to Language 14
Description:

Frames and constructions in metaphoric language shows how linguistic metaphor piggybacks on certain patterns of constructional meaning that have already been identified and studied in non-metaphoric language. Recognition of these shared semantic structures, and comparison of their roles in metaphoric and non-metaphoric constructions, make it possible to apply findings from Frame Semantics, Cognitive Grammar and Construction Grammar to understand how conceptual metaphor surfaces in language.
