On Understanding Nonliteral Speech: Can People Ignore Metaphors?
Glucksberg, Sam; And Others
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v21 n1 p85-98 Feb 1982
Discusses a sequential, three-stage model of how nonliteral expressions are understood, as proposed in recent linguistic, philosophical, and psychological studies. Testing the model's implication that nonliteral meanings of sentences are ignored whenever literal meanings are plausible, finds evidence that both meanings are processed simultaneously and in the same ways.
