The Metaphor and Metonymy Group

The Metaphor and Metonymy Group was formed in 1995-1996 and consists of Dr. Zazie Todd at the Institute of Psychological Sciences, University of Leeds, Dr. Brigitte Nerlich and Prof. David D Clarke at the University of Nottingham, and a number of associate members elsewhere. We hope people interested in metaphor and metonymy (from a developmental, diachronic, cognitive, rhetorical etc. perspective) can use our web site to exchange news and views. We are especially keen to hear from people interested in metonymy, until recently rather neglected compared with metaphor.

If you want to contact us, email Zazie or Brigitte.
Comments/requests about the web pages should be sent to Zazie. More information about the group is available here
