The present volume looks at metaphor and metonymy simultaneously, comparing and contrasting them all the time. It is intended to be a representative survey of combined metaphor and metonymy research in cognitive linguistics during the last decade. Therefore this collection of papers contains both new papers and ones which are already published, but less accessible or heavily revised. The volume's overall theme is structured in four main sections: 1. The metonymic and the metaphoric; 2.The two-domain approach; 3. The interaction between metaphor and metonymy; 4. New breakthroughs: Blending and primary scenes. (René Dirven)
