Abstract:

Figurative language has been regarded traditionally as situated outside the
realm of grammar. However, with the advent of Cognitive Linguistics,
metonymy and metaphor are now recognized as being not only ornamental
rhetorical tropes but fundamental figures of thought that shape, to a
considerable extent, the conceptual structure of languages. The present
volume goes even beyond this insight to propose that grammar itself is
metonymical in nature (Langacker) and that conceptual metonymy and metaphor
leave their imprints on lexicogrammatical structure. This thesis is
developed and substantiated for a wide array of languages and
lexicogrammatical phenomena, such as word class meaning and word formation,
case and aspect, proper names and noun phrases, predicate and clause
constructions, and other metonymically and metaphorically motivated
grammatical meanings and forms. The volume should be of interest to
scholars and students in cognitive and functional linguistics, in
particular, conceptual metonymy and metaphor theory, cognitive typology,
and pragmatics.
