    How to Do Things with Epigenetics: An Investigation Into the Use of Metaphors to Promote Alternative Approaches to Health and Social Science, and Their Implications for Interdisciplinary Collaboration.Brigitte Nerlich, Aleksandra Stelmach & Catherine Ennis - forthcoming - Social Science Information:053901841988711.
    Epigenetics is a multifaceted field within genetics and genomics which focuses on discovering mechanisms involved in gene expression and regulation. It came to public attention around the turn of the millennium when the human genome began to be deciphered. Initial findings from epigenetics research held the promise of changing how we think about health and illness, evolution and heredity; speculations about how individuals and populations could begin to control such processes through epigenetics were then picked up in the public realm.

    Mind, Meaning and Metaphor: The Philosophy and Psychology of Metaphor in 19th-Century Germany.Brigitte Nerlich & David D. Clarke - 2001 - History of the Human Sciences 14 (2):39-61.
    This article explores a German philosophy of metaphor, which proposed a close link between the body and the mind as the basis for metaphor, debunked the view that metaphor is just a decorative rhetorical device and questioned the distinction between the literal and the figurative. This philosophy of metaphor developed at the intersection between a reflection on language and thought and a reflection on the nature of beauty in aesthetics. Thinkers such as Giambattista Vico, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Jean Paul (...)

    Are Rules and Entries Enough? Historical Reflections on a Longstanding Controversy.Brigitte Nerlich & David D. Clarke - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (6):1032-1033.
    For language to function we clearly need two formal ordering principles: lexical entries and rules. Clahsen's target article provides multiple empirical evidence for this distinction, but this may be simply to overconfirm the undeniable and to overlook the hidden motor of language use and language development, namely, function. Since at least 1859, linguists have argued for the primacy of function, and these arguments are worth rediscovering today.
