About this book

How do people understand metaphorical language? Can a commonplace metaphor affect the way people think even if they don't interpret it? Why does it matter how people interpret metaphors? The author proposes an original communication-based theory of metaphor that answers these and other questions about metaphors and metaphorical language.

About the authors

L. DAVID RITCHIE is Professor of Communication at Portland State University, USA.

Reviews

'[This] book, which includes several modified journals articles in the beginning chapters, flows well and benefits from a detailed list of metaphors in the appendix. Its value lies in the explicit and detailed overview and criticisms of various prominent metaphor theories and in its proposal for a new theory of metaphor comprehension.' -Metaphor and Symbol
