Show Summary Details


Studies which approach the question of metaphor with a comparative approach include The Ubiquity of Metaphor: Amsterdam Studies in the Theory and History of Linguistic Science (1985) edited by Wolf Paprotté and René Dirven; the multilingual studies to be found on the online journal, based in Hamburg, Germany; and work carried out by Czech and Polish scholars and published by Irena Vaňková in The Picture of the World in Language (Obraz světa v jazyce, 2001). Eve Sweetser, like Andrew Goatly, is somewhat of an exception in that she is one of the few prominent cognitive linguists to propose comparative work which steers clear of the universalistic approach.

Keywords: metaphor; comparative approach; Irena Vaňková; Eve Sweetser; linguistics
