This paper proposes a theoretical and methodological innovation to examining and grasping metaphor. From a novel cognition conception as inter-bodily and ecologically provided realization, this paper presents an approach to metaphor as a multi-body, multi-party, and multi-timescale event. On a methodological level metaphoricity is investigated as a well-defined and rising element of the coordination processes that establish social interaction.
