CONCEPTUAL INTEGRATION THEORY IN MODELLING THE SEMANTICS OF MALAPHORS


Author:  Golubkova E.E., Taymour M.P.

Abstract:  The article analyses the cognitive aspects of conceptual mixing in a malaphor as a subspecies of mixed metaphor, considers the specifics of the linguistic-cognitive mechanism for creating malaphors, and identifies two models by which the processes of conceptual integration and opposition are realized in this linguistic-cognitive phenomenon.

Keywords:  mixed metaphor ◆ malaphor ◆ cognitive dissonance ◆ theory of conceptual integration ◆ integration model ◆ opposition model
