Robert R. Hoffman & Yorick Wilks, Metaphor and Symbol This newest addition to the Kvecses canon will stand as one of his most engaging and conclusive works. Thus, it is highly recommended for all metaphor researchers and scholars. For a broader readership, the book is engaging as well as pedagogical. Thus, it is highly recommended as a fine overall introduction to the cognitive linguistics of metaphor and as an exceptional overview of the important roles of culture, history, and of course, context in figurative
communication.


P. J. Kurtz, CHOICE [Kvecses] provides good examples from a variety of contextual and cultural situations and includes several chapters on the cognitive aspects of linguistic humor. Recommended.
