Abstract:

It has become increasingly clear that metaphor needs to be explored interms of the social and discourse context in which it is used, especiallywhere the aim is to address real-world problems. The notion of 'realworld' metaphor research has been developed to describe this importantarea of investigation. This book starts by describing the nature and scopeof real world metaphor research and then illustrates, through 17 detailed,mainly empirically-based studies, the different areas it can apply to, anddifferent methodologies that can be employed. Research problems areexplored in areas such as artificial intelligence, language teaching andlearning, reconciliation dialogue, university lecture discourse, poetry andwine description. Methods include corpus analysis, experimentation,discourse analysis, cross-cultural analysis and genre analysis. In eachcase the empirical studies refer back to Gibbs's opening overview ofreal-world research. The result is an invaluable and cross-referencedcollection of papers addressing real-world problems.
