Abstract:
			
The common aim of the contributions to this volume is to shed light on
the communication of conceptual structures. The papers investigate how
speakers rely on the same cognitive dispositions in three different
areas of transfer: in the lexicaliza-tion of metonymies and metaphors;
in intercultural communication; and in expert-lay communication
