What's a metaphor? Metaphor is the expression of one concept in terms of another concept, such as an abstract concept as a physical experience.
How does a metaphor work? The characteristics of the physical experience are transferred to the abstraction
How do we interpret metaphors? Our past experiences of a metaphor give us knowledge of correspondences between two conceptual domains.We seek correspondences between the two conceptual domains.
What is a Metonymy? The use of one entity to refer to another that is related to it, often the use of a part for a whole. The ham sandwich is waiting for his check.
How do Metonymy's work? No transferral of characteristics. Instead the pertinent part of the entity is expressed
How do we interpret Metonymy's? They point out what is important in a scene. They remind us of other things with similar characteristics
