This volume offers new insights into figurative language and its pervasive role as a factor of linguistic change. The case studies included in this book explore some of the different ways new metaphoric and metonymic expressions emerge and spread among speech communities, and how these changes can be related to the need to encode ongoing social and cultural processes in the language. They cover a wide series of languages and historical stages.

Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics
                            Cognitive Science
                            Historical Linguistics

Written In: English (eng)
