"Through contributions by scholars from a wide range of disciplines such as linguistics, artificial intelligence, psychology, and politics, this volume offers an interdisciplinary, contextualized and synchronic-diachronic combined exploration of various aspects of metaphor in naturally occurring discourses... [It] is an excellent contribution for metaphor scholars, discourse analysts, and other researchers in relevant fields." - Discourse Studies
