Abstract:

It has become increasingly clear that metaphor needs to be explored in
terms of the social and discourse context in which it is used, especially
where the aim is to address real-world problems. The notion of 'real
world' metaphor research has been developed to describe this important
area of investigation. This book starts by describing the nature and scope
of real world metaphor research and then illustrates, through 17 detailed,
mainly empirically-based studies, the different areas it can apply to, and
different methodologies that can be employed. Research problems are
explored in areas such as artificial intelligence, language teaching and
learning, reconciliation dialogue, university lecture discourse, poetry and
wine description. Methods include corpus analysis, experimentation,
discourse analysis, cross-cultural analysis and genre analysis. In each
case the empirical studies refer back to Gibbs's opening overview of
real-world research. The result is an invaluable and cross-referenced
collection of papers addressing real-world problems.
