Intentions in the experience of meaning by Raymond W Gibbs( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 2,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What do our assumptions about authorship matter for our experience of meaning? This book examines the debates in the humanities and social sciences over whether authorial intentions can, or should, constrain our interpretation of language and art. This volume challenges the traditional idea that intentions exist solely in the minds of individuals, and formulates a new conceptual framework for examining if and when intentions influence the interpretation of meaning. Intentions in the Experience of Meaning presents a clear and concise overview of state-of-the-art research on the role of intentions in meaningful experience in the fields of psychology, linguistics, philosophy, literature, legal theory, art history, and anthropology."--Jacket
Embodiment and cognitive science by Raymond W Gibbs( )

27 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores how people's subjective, felt experiences of their bodies in action provide part of the fundamental grounding for human cognition and language. Embodiment and Cognitive Science describes the abundance of empirical evidence from many disciplines, including work on perception, concepts, imagery and reasoning, language and communication, cognitive development, and emotions and consciousness, that support the idea that the mind is embodied."--Jacket

Metaphor in cognitive linguistics : selected papers from the 5th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference, Amsterdam, 1997 by International Cognitive Linguistics Conference( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a selection of refereed and revised papers originally presented at the 5th ICLC. After an introduction by the editors, the book opens with a long-needed chapter on historical precedents for the Cognitive Linguistic theory of metaphor. Two chapters demonstrate the method of lexical analysis of linguistic metaphors and how it can be fruitfully applied to a characterization of the conceptual domains of smell and economics. Three chapters deal with theoretical aspects of conceptual metaphor, one of which is a commissioned chapter on the relation between conceptual metaphor theory and conceptual blending. Finally there are five chapters presenting novel theoretical issues and empirical findings about the relation between conceptual metaphor and culture. This book is hence a wide-ranging sample of current approaches to metaphor in Cognitive Linguistics, with some chapters breaking new grounds for future research
Interpreting figurative meaning by Raymond W Gibbs( )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interpreting Figurative Meaning critically evaluates the recent empirical work from psycholinguistics and neuroscience examining the successes and difficulties associated with interpreting figurative language. There is now a huge, often contradictory literature on how people understand figures of speech. Gibbs and Colston argue that there may not be a single theory or model that adequately explains both the processes and products of figurative meaning experience. Experimental research may ultimately be unable to simply adjudicate between current models in psychology, linguistics and philosophy of how figurative meaning is interpreted. Alternatively, the authors advance a broad theoretical framework, motivated by ideas from 'dynamical systems theory', that describes the multiple, interacting influences which shape people's experiences of figurative meaning in discourse. This book details past research and theory, offers a critical assessment of this work and sets the stage for a new vision of figurative experience in human life

Mixing metaphor by Raymond W Gibbs( )

14 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mixing metaphors in speech, writing, and even gesture, is traditionally viewed as a sign of inconsistency in thought and language. Despite the prominence of mixed metaphors, there have been surprisingly few attempts to comprehensively explain why people mix their metaphors so frequently and in the particular ways they do. This volume brings together a distinguished group of linguists, psychologists and computer scientists, who tackle the issue of how and why mixed metaphors arise and what communicative purposes they may serve. These scholars, almost unanimously, argue that mixing metaphors is a natural consequence of common metaphorical thought processes, highlighting important complexities of the metaphorical mind. 'Mixing Metaphor', for the first time, offers new, critical empirical and theoretical insights on a topic that has long been ignored within interdisciplinary metaphor studies

Metaphor wars : conceptual metaphors in human life by Raymond W Gibbs( )

14 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of metaphor is now firmly established as a central topic within cognitive science and the humanities. We marvel at the creative dexterity of gifted speakers and writers for their special talents in both thinking about certain ideas in new ways, and communicating these thoughts in vivid, poetic forms. Yet metaphors may not only be special communicative devices, but a fundamental part of everyday cognition in the form of 'conceptual metaphors'. An enormous body of empirical evidence from cognitive linguistics and related disciplines has emerged detailing how conceptual metaphors underlie significant aspects of language, thought, cultural and expressive action. Despite its influence and popularity, there have been major criticisms of conceptual metaphor. This book offers an evaluation of the arguments and empirical evidence for and against conceptual metaphors, much of which scholars on both sides of the wars fail to properly acknowledge"
