Metaphor and the Logic of Language Use

Published December 1, 1998 by Legas .
Written in English.

About the Book

The study of metaphor is as old as Aristotle, the philosopher who coined the term. And while the amount of academic writing on this topic has reached mind-boggling proportions today, very few frameworks for understanding its interior functioning and its cognitive nature are currently being used by scholars in a consistent fashion. This in-depth study by Alan Bailin provides one framework that will, in my view, go a long way towards systematizing the study of this elusive phenomenon.--Marcel Danesi, Editor of Semiotica

First Sentence

Aristotle (1967:60, 1459) considered it "by far the most important" of all verbal devices.
