Figurative language and thought by Albert N Katz( )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our understanding of the nature and processing of figurative language is central to issues in cognitive science, including the relationship of language and thought, how we process language, and how we comprehend abstract meaning. Points on these and related questions are raised and argued by experts in the area of figurative language
Figurative language comprehension : social and cultural influences by Herbert L Colston( )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Figurative Language Comprehension: Social and Cultural Influences is an edited scholarly book that ties together recent research concerning the social and cultural influences on figurative language cognition. These influences include gender, cultural differences, economic status, and inter-group effects, among others. The effects these influences have on people's use, comprehension, and even processing of figurative language, comprise the main theme of this volume. No other book offers such a look at the social and cultural influences on a whole family of figurative forms at several levels of cognition." "This volume will be of great interest to scholars and professionals in the disciplines of social and cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, and second language acquisition as well as cognitive and other fields of linguistics where scholars have interests in pragmatics, metaphor, symbol, discourse, and narrative. Some knowledge of the empirical and experimental methods used in language research as well as some familiarity with theories underlying the use, comprehension and processing of figurative language would be helpful to readers of this book."--Jaquette
Metaphor : implications and applications by Jeffery Scott Mio( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most psychological work on metaphor focuses on either basic processes or assumed applications. Relatively little has been dedicated to bridging the gap between the two areas. Metaphor: Implications and Applications is an attempt to fill this void. Chapters in this book discuss the pragmatics of metaphor understanding and applications based on research in the areas of clinical interventions and politics, reading, how the blind come to understand their world, and humor. In pulling these views together in one place, the editors hope to provide a perspective that has been up until now "missing in action.""--Jacket

Irony and metaphor : effects of speaker intention and audience polarization in conversation by Christopher J Lee( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results supported the hypothesis that Ratings (ironicity versus metaphoricity) would interact with Speaker Intention such that endorsements would be more metaphoric and rejections would be more ironic. As expected, rejections made in a polarized audience were more ironic than those made in a nonpolarized audience. Also, endorsements made in a polarized audience were more metaphoric than their nonpolarized counterparts. These results demonstrate that the nature of the context plays an important role in language comprehension."

Context Effects in Comprehending Familiar and Unfamiliar Proverbs by Nigel E Turner( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conventionality can be defined as discourse used in its dominant or most familiar sense. In nonliteral language, the intended message is different from the overt message. It has been demonstrated that nonliteral language can be comprehended as rapidly as literal language if both are placed in linguistic context. A study examined whether this held true when unconventional nonliteral language is used. Respondents rated the familiarity of 119 proverbs. Literal and nonliteral contexts were generated for 12 familiar and 12 unfamiliar proverbs. Overall, familiar proverbs were read more quickly than unfamiliar ones. Furthermore, unfamiliar proverbs used in their figurative sense were read more slowly than unfamiliar proverbs used in their literal sense. A follow-up study examined the equivalency in processing of familiar and unfamiliar messages. Students were handed 32 sheets, each bearing a proverb or its paraphrase. The participants were to paraphrase the statements. A familiar proverb, even when placed in its literal context, often generated its figurative meaning, while the reverse was true of unfamiliar proverbs. It appears that some processing differences exist in comprehending literal and figurative language. (Eight figures are attached.) (Sg)
