  1. Meaning Construction in Interactive Academic Talk.Yun Pan - 2019 - Pragmatics and Cognition 26 (2-3):414-446.
    Mental spaces are conceptual structures for meaning representation and interpretation in discourse. They are pervasive in everyday language as an important aspect of ongoing language processing and meaning construction. The application of Mental Space Theory to the analysis of real, attested examples of discourse has been undertaken through productive exchanges. The integration links external, observable language behaviors to internal, conceptual mental operations, revealing that the cognitive dimensions of discursive approaches are essential to the analysis of talk-in-interaction. This study focuses on (...)

  • Conceptual Blends in Polish Anti-Refugee Rhetoric.Jadwiga Linde-Usiekniewicz - 2020 - Cognitive Linguistics 31 (4):647-675.
    Present day anti-refugee and anti-immigrant rhetoric both in European countries and in the USA makes reference both to shared tropes and to culture-specific rhetoric devices. The paper analyzes four instances of Polish rabid anti-refugee rhetoric that is eminently country specific: they invoke Holocaust scenario as the means of dealing with the refugee question, should they appear on Polish soil, and specifically suggest exterminating them in former Nazi death camps. The analysis is carried out within the Conceptual Integration Theory, amended by (...)

  • Cowboy and Misanthrope: A Critical (Discourse) Analysis of Bush and Bin Laden Cartoons.Bahaa-Eddin M. Mazid - 2008 - Discourse and Communication 2 (4):433-457.
    The article investigates the political cartoon construction of two major `players' on the contemporary political stage, and the semio-linguistic and visual rhetorical tools used to achieve this construction, through an analysis of semiotic-discursive aspects of a small corpus of political cartoons in English and Arabic, all about the two `players' — George W. Bush and Osama bin Laden — in the aftermath of 9/11 and within the ongoing `war on terror', followed by a more detailed analysis of two political cartoon (...)

  • Are Abstract Concepts Like Dinosaur Feathers? Objectification as a Conceptual Tool: Evidence From Language and Gesture of English and Polish Native Speakers.Anna Jelec - 2013 - Dissertation,
    Studies based on the Contemporary Theory of Metaphor (Lakoff & Johnson, 1980, 1999) usually identify conceptual metaphors by analysing linguistic expressions and creating a post hoc interpretation of the findings. This method has been questioned for a variety of reasons, including its circularity (Müller, 2008), lack of falsifiability (Vervaeke & Kennedy, 1996, 2004), and lack of predictive power (Ritchie, 2003). It has been argued that CTM requires additional constraints to improve its applicability for empirical research (Gibbs, 2011; Ritchie, 2003). This (...)

  • The Rhetorical and Argumentative Relevance of "Extreme Consequence" in Advertising.Sabrina Mazzali-Lurati, Chiara Pollaroli & Daniela Marcantonio - 2019 - Informal Logic 39 (4):497-530.
    The “extreme consequence” is a very common pattern in advertising messages that presents an odd, even negative, situation resulting from the use of the advertised product as a good reason to buy it. By analyzing selected advertisements employing this pattern using the conceptual integration theory and the Argumentum Model of Topics, we aim to understand how “extreme consequence” works at the rhetorical and argumentative levels. The analyses allow us to detect the typical, generic, cognitive, and argumentative structure underlying the pattern (...)
