Abstract:

'Corporate marriages', 'hostile takeovers' and 'the race for market
domination' - this book looks at the metaphors used in business
magazines and discusses their impact on readers' cognition and
business as a social practice. Koller gives particular attention to
the gendered nature of such metaphors and what they could ultimately
mean for women in business. In doing so, the book uses a corpus of
authentic data. Quantitative analysis of a large collection of
articles and qualitative investigations into a number of sample texts
present the reader with the cognitive and discursive underpinnings of
business magazine texts.

Koller's theoretical approach reconciles cognitive linguistics with
critical approaches to language and discourse, and thus combines two
important and much debated areas into an integrated research
agenda. Of interest to students, researchers and practitioners of
media discourse.
