about

A provoking new approach to how we understand metaphors thoroughly comparing and contrasting the claims made by relevance theorists and cognitive linguists. The resulting hybrid theory shows the complementarity of many positions as well as the need and possibility of achieving a broader and more realistic theory of our understanding.
MARKUS TENDAHL is Lecturer in the Department of English and American Studies, University of Dortmund, Germany. He has published articles in the Journal of Pragmatics and Mind and Language.
