2nd Call For Papers: Ibérica's Special Issue On ''Metaphor and Metonymy in
Science and Technology''

Ibérica is the Journal of the European Association of Languages for Specific
Purposes (AELFE). It is a peer-reviewed open access journal published
biannually, covered by the most important international databases, directories
and index lists such as:

Social Sciences Citation Index, Social Scisearch,
Journal Citation Reports/ Social Sciences Edition,
Arts and Humanities Citation Index,
FECYT, Calidad de Revistas Científicas Españolas,
MLA International Bibliography, and MLA List of Periodicals, among others.

As guest editors of a Special Issue of Ibérica, we invite you to submit
article, book review and interview proposals on the topic ''Metaphor and
Metonymy in Science and Technology''. This special issue responds to the need
for further research on this powerful cognitive mechanism of language and
thought in LSP. Since the very beginning, scientists and technicians have been
making use of metaphor and metonymy to design new concepts, to construct
mental models to support their conceptual system, and to explain new theories
that are difficult to explain to the rest of the scientific community. The
unfolding of scientific and technical language provides relevant information
of the role of metaphor in science and technology, and takes us up into the
very origin of scientific thought. 

During the last 30 years, the development of cognitive science has opened up
new perspectives into the field, thus the study of metaphor in general
language has made great progress. Recently, there is a growing awareness of
the pervasive presence of metaphor in scientific thought and language;
however, specific research on metaphor and metonymy in scientific and
technical discourse remains an open field to be explored from different
perspectives. Newer theoretical frameworks, such as those provided by the
Generative Lexicon or by other lexical or syntactic theories, multimodal
approaches, and cross-linguistic and cross-cultural studies of metaphor and
metonymy represent different approaches that may shed light into new aspects
of research in this area.

The scope of this issue includes all areas of engineering and science, i.e.:

- All engineering fields
- Physical, Earth and Planetary Sci.,
- Life, Health and Medical Sci.,
- Social, Behavioural and Information Sci.,
- Physical activity and Sports Sci.,
- Legal, Political and Economic Sci.
