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
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
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

Barcelona, Antonio 2011 The conceptual motivation of bahuvrihi compounds in English and SpanishCognitive Linguistics: Convergence and Expansion, Brdar, Mario, Stefan Th. Gries and Milena Žic Fuchs (eds.), pp. 151–178 | Article
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
Barcelona, Antonio 2011 Reviewing the properties and prototype structure of metonymyDefining Metonymy in Cognitive Linguistics: Towards a consensus view, Benczes, Réka, Antonio Barcelona and Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez (eds.), pp. 7–58 | Article
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

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

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
