Rate this:
While cognitive linguists are essentially in agreement on both the conceptual nature and the fundamental importance of metonymy, there remain disagreements on a number of specific but, nevertheless, crucial issues. Research questions include: Is metonymy a relationship between "entities" or "domains"? Is it necessarily referential? What is meant by the claim that metonymy is a "stand-for" relationship? Can metonymy be considered a mapping? How can it be distinguished from "active zones" or "facets"? Is it a prototype category? The ten contributions of the present volume address such core issue.
