This volume presents selected contributions to an annual symposium on metaphor and metonymy held at the English Department of Heidelberg University. It brings together papers by lecturers, PhD students and graduates from three universities – Heidelberg University, Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, and the University of East Anglia in Norwich. The contributions illustrate the plurality of perspectives and methods in current cognitive-linguistic research on metaphor and metonymy and exemplify some of the ways in which they can be combined. The papers also attest to the wide range of domains and topics to which metaphor- and metonymy-based research can be applied, including emotion terms, political and scientific discourse, morphology, cross-cultural variation and internet communication.
Frank Polzenhagen and Stefanie Vogelbacher teach linguistics at the English Department of Heidelberg University (Germany). Sonja Kleinke is professor of linguistics at this department. Zoltán Kövecses is professor of linguistics at the Department of American Studies of Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest.
