About the Author:


Zoltan Kövecses is Professor of Linguistics, Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary

Review:


"An excellent introduction to conceptual metaphor, one which undergraduate students, graduate students, and general readers will find accessible yet thought-provoking. This edition has been significantly updated and improved, while retaining the features that have made it a well-loved book for students, such as clear expression, interesting exercises with a useful key, concise chapter summaries, and a very handy index of metaphors and metonymies."--Linguist List
