Metaphor in Languages for Special Purposes

This work is a cognitive-linguistic investigation of metaphor in languages for special purposes (LSP).

This work is a cognitive-linguistic investigation of metaphor in languages for special purposes (LSP). Metaphorization is (re-)defined as a transfer of mental schemata which are mapped from a familiar source domain to analogically structure a hard-to-grasp target domain. Metaphors are empirically evaluated in an investigation of academic writing as well as of popular-scientific texts in the domains of economics, medicine and computing. The empirical analysis provides evidence that even scientific reasoning recurs to metaphorical thinking as an information-processing strategy. Since metaphors appear to define the scientific paradigms which determine (but also constrain) the scope of scientific reasoning, the findings give rise to a discussion about the objectivity of science.

This book presents twelve papers on the use of Languages for Specific Purposes (LSPs) throughout history. From Antiquity to the present time, contributors analyse how LSPs emerged both in Europe and in other parts of the world, such as Judea, North America, and China. The historical aspect of LSPs has generally not been studied in depth, despite being part of the global understanding of the phenomenon. All aspects of professional life are tackled in this book, including administration, commerce, diplomacy, medicine, legal studies, geography, sociology, mathematics and history. This volume will naturally appeal to historians but also to linguists, sociologists, and anyone interested in languages used in a professional context. It offers a better understanding of where LSPs come from, how they emerged and how they tend to become real specialties in the teaching of modern languages.

This book presents a number of different perspectives on the central theme of 'evidence' and its interpretation in the study of specialist languages and their various uses. The principal topics include text corpora, citation patterns, some challenging dichotomies, terminology and knowledge management, and specialist translation. Each topic is presented in one of five parts, each with its own introduction. The volume includes contributions from established and new researchers in the field, as well as well-known scholars from other disciplines who bring a fresh eye to LSP studies. The book presents selected papers from LSP2003, the 14th European Symposium on Language for Special Purposes held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, in co-operation with the AILA Scientific Commission on Language for Special Purposes.
