Abstract

<i>Metonymy in Language and Thought</i> gives a state-of-the-art account of metonymic research. The contributions have different disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds in linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology and literary studies. However, they share the assumption that metonymy is a cognitive phenomenon, a &#8220;figure of thought,&#8221; underlying much of our ordinary conceptualization that may be even more fundamental than metaphor. The use of metonymy in language is a reflection of this conceptual status. The framework within which metonymy is understood in this volume is that of scenes, frames, scenarios, domains or idealized cognitive models.<br />The chapters are revised papers given at the Metonymy Workshop held in Hamburg, 1996.<br />

Subjects: Cognitive psychology; Cognition and language; Discourse studies
