Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter offers an overview of conceptual metaphor research with particular attention to specialised language. It surveys the growing body of research showing the role of metaphor both as a tool to generate and develop scientific thinking and as a resource for specialised knowledge popularisation. This chapter also addresses specialised languag...
Article
Full-text available
By disabling two traditional constraints on general-language one-verb sub-events, Goldberg shows that: (i) a verb can specify both manner and result or change of location; and (ii) the profiled event of one verb need not be causally related to the evoked background frame event. This study develops Goldberg's claims further to show that a single ver...
Article
Full-text available
This study discusses the mimic octopus’ (Thaumoctopus mimicus) acts of imitation of a banded sea-snake (Laticauda sp.) as an antagonistic response to enemies from a cognitive-semiotic perspective. This mimicry model, which involves very close physical resemblance and highly precise enactment, displays goal-orientedness because the octopus only take...

http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/hmet20/current This study explores multimodal metaphors and metonymies in Faust, a German Expressionist silent fiction movie by Murnau (1926). The paper combines principles of psychocinematics (Shimamura, 2013b), an interdisciplinary scientific field of enquiry, with the multimodal metaphor and expressive movement m...
Article
Full-text available
Novel metaphorical expressions are understudied in traditional approaches to terminology because they behave as sporadic units incapable of structuring whole discourse events. To show that this assumption is wrong, this paper presents a case study of novel bioeconomics metaphors in an academic marine biology research article (Landa 1998). They were...
Article
Full-text available
Image schemas are mental constructs central to human cognitive psychology. The neurobiological grounding of these structures has been suggested by experimental research both in non-human primates (Rizzolatti and Craighero 2004; Umiltá et al. 2001) and lower animals (Knudsen 2002, 1998). However, their applicability as concrete cognitive products ha...
Article
Full-text available
This research applied corpus analysis techniques to a corpus of marine biology texts in Peninsular Spanish (PS) and Latin American Spanish (LAS). The results explain why these varieties of Spanish have different designations for the same sea organism. The focus of our research was thus on types of formal onomasiological variation (Geeraerts, Gronde...
Article
Full-text available
According to Frame-Based Terminology (Faber et al. 2005, 2006, 2007), a crucial issue in terminology management is how specialized concepts should be represented within the knowledge structure of a scientific domain. This paper proposes a model of specialized concept representation based on conceptual frames (Faber et al. 2006, 2007; Faber 2011) an...
Book
Full-text available
This book explores the importance of Cognitive Linguistics for specialized language within the context of Frame-based Terminology (FBT). FBT uses aspects of Frame Semantics, coupled with premises from Cognitive Linguistics to structure specialized domains and create non-language-specific knowledge representations. Corpus analysis provides informati...
Article
Full-text available
Metaphor plays an important role in language creativity and knowledge representation in specialised domains, and its role has been studied by scholars in the field (e.g. Temmerman 2000; Faber and Márquez 2004; Tercedor Sánchez 2004; Ureña Gómez Moreno 2011; Vandaele and Lubin 2005). In contrast, metonymy has received little attention in terminology...
Chapter
Full-text available
Metaphor can be analysed from a structural, functional, conceptual, or contrastive point of view. From a conceptual viewpoint, an experientialist account of conceptual metaphor includes: (i) mechanisms of metaphorization, (ii) image metaphors vs. multiple-correspondence metaphors, (iii) motivation for metaphorical transfer, and (iv) conceptual them...

Article
Full-text available
Cognitive linguists have finally agreed that metaphorical thought is the result of neither nature nor nurture, but a combination of both. Despite the acknowledgment of this dual grounding (Sinha, 1999), cross-linguistic studies addressing the significance of cultural factors to form specialised concepts through metaphor are still rare. Research is...

Article
Full-text available
This article proposes a method for the semi-automatic extraction of resemblance metaphor terms from a manually annotated corpus of marine biology texts in English and Spanish. The corpus was first searched for target domain terms as well as for lexical markers indicative of metaphors. The combination of these search strategies for metaphor extracti...
Article
Full-text available
This article analyses the nature of mental imagery in metaphoric thought as envisaged by the contemporary theory of metaphor in Cognitive Linguistics (Lako¤ 1993). Our study of metaphor in the field of marine biology draws on two crucial aspects of mental imagery, namely dynamicity and perva- siveness. Image metaphors and behaviour-based metaphors...
