Objects of Metaphor

Samuel Guttenplan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Three recent and important accounts of metaphor are discussed in detail. These are: Stern’s Demonstrative account, White’s Conflated Sentence account, and Fogelin’s Simile account. What is right and wrong with these accounts can best be understood from the perspective of the Semantic Descent account, and the materials in this chapter provide some indirect further support for this account.

Keywords:   J. Stern, R. White, R. Fogelin, Conflated Sentence account, Demonstrative account, Simile account, Semantic Descent account
