Metaphorical motion constructions across specialized genres
In this paper I discuss the metaphorical motivation of the figurative – fictive and metaphorical – motion constructions found in architecture, wine, and tennis texts as the preliminary step to argue for the need to adopt a discourse approach to exploring fictive motion in general. My main contention is that in order to explore this phenomenon particular attention needs to be paid to the topic(s) thus predicated, the users of the metaphors (bringing in the discourse communities they belong to), and the characteristics of the discourses and genre(s) where the expressions are used.
