Lecture 5 - Ten Lectures on Figurative Meaning-Making: The Role of Body and Context
The present book contains a transcribed
version of the lectures given by Professor Zoltán Kövecses in November 2010 as
one of the three forum speakers for the 8th China International Forum on
Cognitive Linguistics. The topics presented in this book deal with the language
and conceptualization of emotions, cross-cultural variation in metaphor,
metaphor and metonymy in discourse, and the issue of the relationship between
language, mind, and culture from a cognitive linguistic perspective.
