Patterns of Imagery in Language
Why are multimodal metaphors interesting? The perspective of verbo-visual and verbo-musical modalities
Elżbieta Górska University of Warsaw
The article discusses advantages of taking a multimodal metaphor perspective not only for metaphor research, but also for studies of linguistic attention, information flow and of general issues pertaining to language and cognition. The examples come from newspaper cartoons, ads, gesture studies, Barenboim’s (2006) lectures on life and music, and Wender’s (2011) film Pina. A practical application of Müller’s (2008a) multimodal metaphor theory in a technique of psychotherapy known as the Dance Movement Therapy (Kolter et al. 2012) is also presented.
