Example text

Thus, for appeal we have an abstract general sense and a more concrete but also specialized legal sense. If we decide that the latter is basic because it is more concrete, then the general sense of appeal is a case of generalization instead of similarity, and it can therefore be treated as a case of synecdoche instead of metaphor. This should be contrasted with a case like palliate, where we see both generalization and similarity based on metaphorical mapping from concrete (relieve physical pain) to abstract (relieve generally bad situations of their most serious aspects).

MIPVU  indication of the (original) domain from which the word derives. For instance, there are verbs such as trot and roar which may be applied with equal ease to a range of concrete entities, but the nonhuman, animal origin (basic sense) of the lexical units decides which applications are metaphorical and which are not. 7. However, other lexical units may have a less clear domain of origin, such as the verb ride. It is presented in the Macmillan dictionary as monosemous between animal and artefact.

For instance, the verb to groom does not have distinct senses for people and animals in Macmillan, but it does in Longman; as a result, we rely on Longman to conclude that the two senses are sufficiently distinct. By contrast, transform has one general sense in Macmillan, which is corroborated by the Longman dictionary. 3 Deciding about sufficient distinctness Metaphorical meanings depend on a contrast between a contextual meaning and a more basic meaning. This suggests that the more basic meaning has to be sufficiently distinct from the contextual meaning for the latter to be seen as potentially participating in another semantic or conceptual domain.
