On Understanding Metaphor: The Role of Context.
Gildea, Patricia; Glucksberg, Sam
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v22 n5 p577-90 Oct 1983
The question of what constitutes a minimal appropriate context for understanding a metaphor is examined through the relative effectiveness of three types of contextual priming for metaphor comprehension. All three produced immediate and automatic metaphor comprehension. The use of context to disambiguate both literal and nonliteral speech messages is discussed. (MSE)
