The Contemporary Theory of Metaphor 作者: Ning Yu 出版社: John Benjamins Publishing Co 副标题: A Perspective from Chinese (Human Cognitive Processing, Vol 1) 出版年: 页数: 定价: USD 装帧: Hardcover ISBN: The contemporary theory that metaphor is primarily conceptual, conventional, and part of the ordinary system of thought and language can be traced to Michael Reddy's (this volume) now classic paper, The Conduit Metaphor, which first appeared in the first edition of this collection.

Philosophers, psychologists, linguists, and educators raise serious questions about the viability of the traditional distinction between the literal and the metaphorical, discussing problems ranging from the definition of metaphor to its role in language 4/5(1).This article discusses some of the claims of the earlier and later versions of the Contemporary Theory of Metaphor (CTM) and addresses some of the criticism that has been leveled against it.

It is argued that much of this criticism arises from common misconceptions as to the real claims made by the theory.By showing how contributors to this volume place special emphasis on the multimodal and interactive nature of communication, the chapter assesses the potential of contemporary metaphor research for a dynamic multidimensional socio-cognitive model of metaphor that goes beyond what either of the research traditions have separately achieved.
