Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

The article analyzes the difference between vision-cued metaphors and language-cued metaphors and discusses how brain processes might provide different affordances for making verbal metaphors and making visual metaphors. Visual communication possess complex and concrete salient information whereas language is abstract and may need metaphors to provide qualia salience. Visual communication has difficulties in constructing salient metaphors. The point is demonstrated by analyses of a number of film metaphors.
