The book contains discussions of a broad range of theoretical issues of metonymy, such as cognitive models, semantic representations, and the links with conceptual metaphors. It provides recent analyses of the phenomenon in such fields as grammar, lexical semantics, pragmatics, semiotics, as well as literature. The individual papers concentrate on the operation of single and multiple metonymies in modality, conditionals, compounding, and concept formation - both from a synchronic and diachronic perspective. Aphasia, Creole languages, novels by Terry Pratchett and creole Laurence Sterne are only some of the areas in which the presence of metonymy is discussed.
