Metonymy in Language and Thought gives a state-of-the-art account of metonymic research. The contributions have different disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds in linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology and literary studies. However, they share the assumption that metonymy is a cognitive phenomenon, a “figure of thought,” underlying much of our ordinary conceptualization that may be even more fundamental than metaphor. The use of metonymy in language is a reflection of this conceptual status. The framework within which metonymy is understood in this volume is that of scenes, frames, scenarios, domains or idealized cognitive models.
The chapters are revised papers given at the Metonymy Workshop held in Hamburg, 1996.

“Overall, there is no doubt that the volume under review constitutes a primary resource which will help everyone working in the fields of cognitive linguistics and figurative language. It is well worth reading, and re-reading, because it offers a unique insight into the complexity of the issues underlying metonymix expressions.”
“Seventeen first-rate papers present metonymy within a conceptual framework of scenarios, scenes, frames, domains, and idealized cognitive models (ICMs). The book concludes with a useful index of metonymies and metaphors.”
“[...] an important work in Metonymy research that must be consulted in any study of Metonymy [...]”
