The de Gruyter lexicon Metaphor Theories provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of metaphor, a compendium-like overview of all metaphor theories, and an extensive bibliography on the topic. Existing metaphor theories are divided into four main categories: 1. structural theories (Coseriu, Jakobson, et al.), 2. pragmatic theories (Searle, Grice, et al.), 3. semantic theories (Ricoeur, Danto, et al.) and 4. functional theories (Buhler, Blumenberg, et al.). The lexicon is a reference work on the phenomenon of metaphorical speech - an intensely discussed topic in the fields of literary science and linguistics, as well as in philosophy. Key Features Basic introduction to the concept of metaphor Comprehensive description and categorization of all existing metaphor theories A reference work on a central topic in the Humanities An indispensable tool for students and professionals in the fields of linguistics, literary science, philosophy and communication theory
