Conceptual Metaphor as Rhetorical Response: A Reconsideration of Metaphor.
Eubanks, Philip
Written Communication, v16 n2 p171-99 Apr 1999
Examines sociohistorically situated data to provide an understanding of conceptual metaphor using the phrase "trade is war." Describes the workings of image-schematically compatible or incompatible metaphors as they operate in the concrete discourse of trade. Finds that metaphors are fundamentally responsive and are therefore implicated in a rhetorically constituted give-and-take among related groupings of metaphors and literal concepts. (CR)
