About this title


The book examines the logic of metaphor, specifically the way in which metaphor affects the interpretation of utterances. It argues that there are clear conceptual linguistic rules governing metaphorical interpretation and the inferences we can make with it. The study uses a wide variety of examples, many of which exemplify phenomena that have not been previously examined.

About the Author:

Alan Bailin (PhD, McGill University) has written on metaphor, the logic of fiction, and intelligent computer-assisted instruction. He has taught at The University of Western Ontario and Texas A&M. He has served as associate editor of the international journal, Computers and the Humantities.
