    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 224.00

    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. This elaboration is achieved on the background of Lakoff and Johnson's twodomain approach, i.e. the mapping of a source onto a target... more...

  • 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.

Interpretation and definition as rhetorical and logical... more...
