Metaphors, cognition, language constructions and contexts: Seminar presentation
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of English.
2012 (English)Other (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This presentation will start with an overview of theories about the character and function of metaphor, and then proceed to an examination of central dimensions in metaphor analyses, describing and discussing the status or function of aesthetics, rhetoric, categorisation, (embodied) conceptualisation, and text building in metaphor formation and use. It will conclude with an outline of the perceived weight and value of various attempts at explaining the nature of metaphor in human conception and communication.
