By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Abstract: This is a review of two books, Lycan (2001) written from a philosophical perspective, and Dancygier & Sweetser (2005) written from a Cognitive Linguistic perspective. Despite sharing many concerns and approaches, there is hardly any overlap in the bibliographies of the two books, reflecting an unfortunate level of academic compartmentalism.
