Domanska-Gruszka, Jolanta. 2006. Interpretative metaphoric calculation on the example of the structure of 'le N1' and 'un N2'. Outramargem: revista de filosofia: (UFMG) 33 : 105–112. 8 pp.


In the present paper the author tries to analyze the phenomenon of linguistic metaphor not at the level of 'langue' but rather as the result of discursive uses. The basic predicative structure 'le N1 est un N2' in French in metaphorical use is treated not as categorization but as characterization of subject. The author compares pragma-semantic and discursive approach of the metaphorical predication and its interpretation - analogy as included in the system and "conformity judgment" as a local characterization. The final considerations are about philosophical implications of metaphorical words uses. Adapted from the source document (LLBA, Accession Number 200702891, (c) CSA [2007]. All rights reserved.)
