GENDER-MARKED METAPHORS: INFLUENCE OF LINGUISTIC AND EXTRA-LINGUISTIC FACTORS ON A REFERENTIAL CHOICE
Tomsk National Research University
We explored the influence of linguistic (grammatical gender, animateness), speech (frequency and syntactic position of the words) and extra-linguistic factors (sex of subject) on a referential relatedness of metaphorical name of the person in the Russian language in a series of experiments (pendulum is a ﬁgurative name of a man or woman?).
