THE INTERRELATION BETWEEN COGNITIVE AND DISCOURSE APPROACHES TO METAPHOR AND METONYMY
Castello de la Plana
April 3-4, 2003
Jaume I University, Spain
Call for papers
Contributions are encouraged on all aspects of metaphor and metonymy studies, with special emphasis on the interrelation between two approaches, on the one hand, the well known cognitive theory of metaphor initiated by Lakoff and Johnson (1980) and similar approaches that deal with the role of conceptual mappings in thought, language and culture; and, on the other hand, the recently emergent trend that deals with metaphor and metonymy phenomena at the level of discourse and their role in text coherence, text development, and social interaction. Our aim is to bring together specialists and researchers involved in these research matters in order to discuss recent and new contributions to the field, as well as to open new debates about the relevance of conceptual mappings in relation to thought, language, and discourse analysis.
