Sažetak
The chapters in the present volume may be roughly characterized as contributions to pragmatics from a cognitive linguistics perspective. Cognitive linguistics and modern pragmatics share a number of objects of inquiry, although their theoretical assumptions are often at odds. Both fields are, among other things, concerned with the investigation of principles of language use, the organization and functions of discourse, the conceptual and inferential nature of rhetorical tropes and figures of thought such as metaphor and metonymy, and the relationship between language function and grammatical structure. The purpose of this introductory chapter is to point out some commonalities and differences between contemporary pragmatic approaches and cognitive linguistics, focusing on the relation between metonymy and pragmatic inference. The contributions to this volume have been organized into four parts. Part I is concerned with defining the role of metonymy in inferential utterance interpretation and conceptual blends. Part II focuses on the metonymic motivation of grammatical structure. Part III explores the role of metonymic inferencing in linguistic change. Part IV closes the book comparing the exploitation of metonymies from a cross-linguistic perspective.
