Chapter 2. The tripartite typology and the Córdoba Metonymy Database. Metaphor and Metonymy in the Digital Age: Theory and methods for building repositories of figurative language, Bolognesi, Marianna, Mario Brdar and Kristina Š. Despot (eds.), pp. 49–742019.
The Córdoba Metonymy Database has been designed as a tool for systematically investigating conceptual metonymy across a wide variety of authentic discourse samples, mostly in English and Spanish. Its entry model features eleven analytical fields. One of them, Field 2, is devoted to suggesting the… read more | Chapter
Conceptual structuring of the English prepositions between, among, and amid, and their Spanish equivalent entre: A cognitive linguistic approach to spatial, non-spatial and temporal scenes. Cognitive Linguistic Studies 6:1, pp. 103–1292019.
Spatial language has been traditionally understood as encoding purely spatio-geometric information. However, much more than that must be considered for a full account of the semantics of space. It turns out that spatial arrangements manifest functional consequences which are non-spatial, so… read more | Article
Chapter 1. General description of the metonymy database in the Córdoba project, with particular attention to the issues of hierarchy, prototypicality, and taxonomic domains. Conceptual Metonymy: Methodological, theoretical, and descriptive issues, Blanco-Carrión, Olga, Antonio Barcelona and Rossella Pannain (eds.), pp. 27–542018.
This chapter presents part of the results of our project on metonymy, one of the aims of which is to compile a detailed database of metonymy. The database entry model is first briefly described, but the chapter focuses on the discussion of three issues addressed by four of the database entry fields. read more | Chapter
Introduction: The complex task of studying metonymy. Conceptual Metonymy: Methodological, theoretical, and descriptive issues, Blanco-Carrión, Olga, Antonio Barcelona and Rossella Pannain (eds.), pp. 1–242018.
The conceptual motivation of bahuvrihi compounds in English and Spanish. Cognitive Linguistics: Convergence and Expansion, Brdar, Mario, Stefan Th. Gries and Milena Žic Fuchs (eds.), pp. 151–1782011.
This chapter investigates a representative sample of English and Spanish bahuvrihi compounds (BCs). The main thesis is that, although BCs are motivated by the overriding metonymy characteristic property for category, the property itself can be conceptualized “literally” (as in humpback or dos… read more | Article
Reviewing the properties and prototype structure of metonymy. Defining Metonymy in Cognitive Linguistics: Towards a consensus view, Benczes, Réka, Antonio Barcelona and Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez (eds.), pp. 7–582011.
Building on previous research (Barcelona, 2002, 2003), the author carefully discusses and takes a stand on the issues he finds problematic in the standard cognitive linguistic notion of metonymy. These include, among others, the status of metonymy as a mapping, as a stand-for relationship, as a… read more | Article
An overview of cognitive linguistics. Cognitive Linguistics: Convergence and Expansion, Brdar, Mario, Stefan Th. Gries and Milena Žic Fuchs (eds.), pp. 17–442011.
This chapter provides a survey of cognitive linguistics (CL). It presents the historical and intellectual context leading to its emergence as a reaction against generativism and extreme modularism. The chapter describes the main theoretical and methodological tenets of CL (non-modularism,… read more | Article
Introduction. Defining Metonymy in Cognitive Linguistics: Towards a consensus view, Benczes, Réka, Antonio Barcelona and Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez (eds.), pp. 1–62011.
Metonymic inferencing and second language acquisition. Applied Cognitive Linguistics in Second Language Learning and Teaching, Littlemore, Jeannette and Constanze Juchem-Grundmann (eds.), pp. 134–1552010.
The article is a reflection on the various areas of cognitive linguistic research on metonymy that are of potential relevance for SLA. Three of them are particularly relevant: (1) research on metonymy-guided inferencing; (2) research on metonymy-based lexical polysemy, and (3) research on… read more | Article
Motivation of construction meaning and form: The roles of metonymy and inference. Metonymy and Metaphor in Grammar, Panther, Klaus-Uwe, Linda L. Thornburg and Antonio Barcelona (eds.), pp. 363–4012009.
The interaction of metonymy and metaphor in the meaning and form of ‘bahuvrihi’ compounds. Annual Review of Cognitive Linguistics: Volume 6, Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez, Francisco José (ed.), pp. 208–2812008.
This paper reports on ongoing work on a large sample of bahuvrihi compounds in English and Spanish. After a brief characterization of bahuvrihi compounds, distinguishing them from a similar type of exocentric compounds (V+O compounds), the goal of the paper is clearly stated, namely to answer a… read more | Article
The role of metonymy in meaning construction at discourse level: A case study. Aspects of Meaning Construction, Radden, Günter, Klaus-Michael Köpcke, Thomas Berg and Peter Siemund (eds.), pp. 51–752007.
The process of meaning construction, as understood by Panther and Thornburg(Panther 2005), namely the determination of both explicit and implicit meaning, is to a large extent guided or facilitated by conceptual metonymy. The previously published research of the author of this chapter on the… read more | Article
