Title: Pictorial Metaphor in Advertising
Written By: Charles Joseph Forceville

In PICTORIAL METAPHOR IN ADVERTISING, Charles Forceville argues that metaphor can also occur in pictures and draws on relevant studies from various disciplines to propose a model for the identification, classification and analysis of "pictorial metaphors." By using insights taken from a range of linguistic and cognitive perspectives--interaction and relevance theory--Forceville demonstrates his point and provides a framework within which these pictorial metaphors can be analyzed.
