Frame, Metaphor and Metonymy in Onomasiological Lexicography
This paper demonstrates lexicographic applications of the conceptual theory of metaphor and metonymy and frame semantics in onomasiological dictionary-making. The author uses newly coined terms framestructure, metaphostructure, and metostructure to refer to a frame-based macrostructure, a metaphor-based macrostructure, and a metonymy-based macrostructure, respectively. This paper makes a noteworthy contribution to the current trends in pedagogical lexicography that advocate a more transparent connection between literal and figurative meaning, and, at the same time, it attempts to add a number of practical solutions. A new approach to the classificatory structure, developed and refined in this paper, could be applied in onomasiological lexicography to the compilation of thematic reference works of various subject fields and branches of human activities.
