Semantic leaps : frame-shifting and conceptual blending in meaning construction /

by Coulson, Seana, autore .
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York ; Melbourne [etc.] : Cambridge University Press, ©2001Description: XIII, 304 p.) : ill. ; 23 cm.ISBN: 0521027837; 9780521027830.Summary: Semantic Leaps explores how people combine knowledge from different domains in order to understand and express new ideas. Concentrating on dynamic aspects of on-line meaning construction, Coulson identifies two related sets of processes: frame-shifting and conceptual blending. By addressing linguistic phenomena often ignored in traditional meaning research, Coulson explains how processes of cross-domain mapping, frame-shifting, and conceptual blending enhance the explanatory adequacy of traditional frame-based systems for natural language processing. The focus is on how the constructive processes speakers use to assemble, link, and adapt simple cognitive models underlie a broad range of productive language behavior.
