This chapter explores further the nature of song and also the process of conceptual blending. As noted in Chapter 2, conceptual blending is a pervasive and often transparent process in which elements from two correlated mental spaces combine in a third. The mental spaces basic to conceptual blends can be set up by music as well as by language. This idea is discussed based on the assumption that music can set up complete discourse structures, which can be correlated with the discourse structure of a text to give rise to a unique domain for the imagination.

Keywords: conceptual blending; Wilhem Müller; Trockne Blumen; Bernhard Klein; Franz Schubert; Robert Schumann
