Metaphor in Legal Discourse
This book explores different aspects of metaphoricity in legal discourse, from court proceedings and written institutionalised texts to judges’ argumentation and in spoken records, among others. It brings together linguists and law professionals from six different countries to investigate metaphor as a conceptual phenomenon accessible through language and, more specifically, through actual linguistic contexts of use.
