Metaphor is a topical issue across a number of disciplines, wherever
researchers are concerned with how speakers and writers package and process
messages. This book is addressed at readers from diverse academic
backgrounds who are interested in ways of researching metaphor from
different perspectives, and especially through corpus linguistics. A number
of approaches to and exploitations of metaphor, including conceptual
metaphor theory and cognitive approaches more generally, text and spoken
discourse analysis, and CDA, are discussed, explored and critiqued using
corpus data. The book also includes corpus linguistic studies of different
aspects of metaphor, which investigate its linguistic and semantic
properties and relate them to current theoretical views. The book
demonstrates the need for naturally-occurring language data to be used in
the development of metaphor theory, and shows the value of corpus data and
techniques in this work.
