Sažetak
The present paper is concerned with the cognitive status of expressions traditionally referred to by the name of hyperbole, its chief aim being to demonstrate that metonymic mappings are often operative in producing various pragmatic effects found with hyperbolic expressions. This claim is tested on several types of so-called “ pure” hyperboles, primarily on number hyperboles. It turns out that no viable all-round definition of hyperbole can be formulated that would be based on an isomorphic relation between linguistic form and a corresponding meaning shift. What seems to remain constant across different traditionally defined subtypes of hyperbole is just the hyperbolic effect brought about by a great variety of linguistic means and conceptual processes.
