THE USE AND THE SHIFT OF METAPHORS IN ADR

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

This study on the use and shift of metaphors in alternative dispute resolutions aims to consider the clever use of conceptual metaphors among the linguistic competences that are desirable for mediators working in Europe under the provisions of the Directive 2008/52.The interest in developing the role of metaphors in influencing the resolution of disputes has called for a multidisciplinary approach that will focus on the studies carried out by experts in Cognitive Linguistics, Legal Pragmatics, Law and Mediation matters.Part I presents the claims made by Cognitive Linguistics on what a conceptual metaphor is and how it works in both every day and specialized language; Part II deals with the conventional metaphors used by English language speakers in the field of law and mediation; finally, part III shows how metaphors are used in the mediation process.
