This volume explores linguistic metaphor identification in a wide variety of languages and language families. The book is an essential read for anyone interested in researching language and metaphor, from students to experienced scholars. Its primary goals are to discuss the challenges involved in applying the Metaphor Identification Procedure Vrije Universiteit (MIPVU) to a range of languages across the globe, and to offer theoretically grounded advice and guidelines enabling researchers to identify metaphors in multiple languages in a valid and replicable way. The volume is intended as a practical guidebook that identifies and discusses procedural challenges of metaphor identification across languages, thus better enabling researchers to reliably identify metaphor in a multitude of languages. Although able to be read independently, this volume – written by metaphor researchers from around the world – is the ideal companion volume for the 2010 Benjamins book A Method for Linguistic Metaphor Identification: From MIP to MIPVU.

Table of Contents
“All chapters are well-written and accessible to advanced students and experts alike, and are both self-contained and meaningful in the context of the volume as a whole. The book conveys a clear message per-taining to the establishment of pathways to consistent metaphor identifica¬tion across languages, with the chapters ordered in a meaningful sequence.”
“The edited volume is an excellent resource for researchers who want to apply the procedure, and adopt it to a specific language, either one of the languages discussed in the book, or one that has not been dealt with so far. Furthermore, it is a good resource for advanced MIPVU users, researchers and university lecturers who would like to teach the procedure in English or any other language.”
“All in all, although readers familiar with MIP/MIPVU might have profited from a more compact presentation of key modifications, scholars applying an identification procedure for the first time, particularly to a language other than English, will find this book immensely useful.”
