    Palgrave Macmillan 2004; US$ 125.00

    In a stimulating and novel approach, this book explains why metaphors are persuasive, suggesting that they are ideologically effective because they are cognitively plausible and evoke an emotional response.

  • Metaphor and Metonymy in Comparison and Contrastby René Dirven; Ralf Pörings

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 238.00

    The book elaborates one of Roman Jakobson's many brilliant ideas, i.e. his insight that the two cognitive strategies of the metaphoric and the metonymic are the end-points on a continuum of conceptualization processes.

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 168.43

  • Politics & Rhetoricby George E. Yoos

    Palgrave Macmillan 2009; US$ 110.00

    Since we need words with new meanings to discover what is true, it follows that without those words there could be no truth as we know it. Without just those words that we create there would be no knowledge for us. In that case knowledge is found embedded in the very words that we formulate. Interpretation and definition as rhetorical and logical... more...

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 151.20

    The State of Stylistics contains a broad collection of papers that investigate how stylistics has evolved throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Her preparedness to meet Pat Magee opened... more...
