Abstract:

When the last speaker of a language dies, s/he takes to oblivion the 
memories, associations and the rich imagery this language community has 
once lived by. The cultural heritage encoded in conventional linguistic 
metaphors, handed down through generations, will be lost forever. This 
volume consists of fifteen articles about metaphors in endangered languages, 
from Peru to Alaska, from India to Ghana.

The empirical data demonstrate that the assumptions of contemporary 
cognitive linguistic theory about "universal" metaphors and the underlying 
cognitive processes are still far from plausible, since culture plays an 
important role in the formation of metaphors. Moreover, that theory has been 
based on knowledge of metaphors in some standard languages. Indigenous 
and other minority languages, especially mainly orally used ones, have been 
disregarded completely.

Besides researchers and students in linguistics, especially in metaphor and 
figurative language theory, this compilation provides food for thought for 
scholars in large fields of cultural studies, ranging from anthropology and 
ethnology to folkloristics and philosophy.
