The Haunting of Communication Research by Dead Metaphors: For Reflexive Analyses of the Communication Research Literature.
Nelson, Christian K.
Language & Communication, v21 n3 p245-72 Jul 2001
Explicates two closely related metaphors about communication in everyday discourse that lead to a picture of communication as an indeterminate process for sharing subjective meanings. Demonstrates the tacit utilization of these metaphors by the Michigan State tradition of compliance-gaining research through examination of both their theory and methodology. (Author/VWL)
