More Description

Using dominant metaphors in American English and the Chinese language, Metaphor, Culture, and Worldview explores how metaphor is a product that is simultaneously shaped by and is shaping the culture and the worldview of the people who use it, and how it showcases some unique features of communication of the speakers of the two languages. Using examples mostly from media and other public speeches and writings, author Dilin Liu argues that sports and business constitute the dominant metaphors in American English while family and eating form the prevailing metaphors in Chinese. To assist the reader in understanding the metaphors discussed, the book contains a glossary of dominant American and Chinese metaphorical idioms.
