Update: New Date For

Workshop “Metaphor and Ambiguity Analysis” (MAmbA)

26-27 March 2021, Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen

 

Organizers: Natascha Elxnath & Sarah Metzger (both GRK 1808)

This workshop is concerned with the different types of conflicts that lead to metaphorical readings. We hypothesize that a thorough investigation of the underlying conflicts sheds light upon larger questions metaphor research has been struggling with: how to model the ambiguity of metaphors from a formal semantic point of view, and how to properly distinguish between metaphorical and literal readings.

Louise McNally (Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona)
Michele Prandi (Università di Genova)
Irene Rapp (Universität Tübingen) and Stefan Engelberg (IDS Mannheim)
