Additional Information:Corpus Approaches to Critical Metaphor Analysis (2004). This monograph is recognised as being amongst the first to integrate the three previously separate areas of cognitive linguistics, critical linguistics and corpus linguistics. It explains that metaphors are persuasive and ideologically effective when they are cognitively plausible and evoke an emotional response. The impact of the work can be gauged from the following reviewer's quotation: �� I have attended only to the theoretical framework of Critical Metaphor Analysis because it offers a lucid methodology for critical metaphor studies located explicitly within the Critical Discourse Analysis paradigm. As such, this book is a valuable contribution to CDA but also demonstrates how Cognitive Linguistics can inform interdisciplinary studies of discourse in social and political domains.� (Reviewed at; also Reviewed in Metaphor & Symbol 2005, Vol. 20, No. 4, Pages 295-301).
