Read full description of the books:

The way in which we understand the concept of intelligence isrooted in metaphor and metonymy; for example, it is common todescribe people as 'bright' or 'thick'.This book explores the motivation for some of the lexemes in thissemantic field across the history of the English language, considering the range of cognitive mechanisms and cultural factorsthat can inform metaphorical and metonymical mappings.

Provides a much-needed diachronic approach to theories ofmetaphor and metonymy within cognitive semantics, building on thework of scholars such as Geeraerts and Sweetser

Argues that a diachronic approach offers a fresh perspectivewhich can both complement and challenge current theories ofmetaphor and metonymy

Explores both cognitive and cultural issues relating tomotivation, and takes account of established theories of semanticchange alongside recent work in cognitive linguistics

Considers three of the concepts that have been important in theway intelligence is conceptualized diachronically: the senses, density, and animals

Includes a detailed case study of these source concepts whichprovides a starting point for a wider discussion about the natureof mapping processes
