The AaO as building block in the coupling of text kinematics with the resonating structure of a metaphor

Bierschenk, Bernhard LU and Bierschenk, Inger (2002) In Kognitionsvetenskaplig forskning / Cognitive Science Research 85.
Abstract
This article presents a study of the metaphor as instrument for the direct perception of events. Its major hypothesis refers to the event structure embedded in the ground of a metaphor. Since the ground is implicit in the linguistic manifestation, an invariant representation of textual movement patterns is assumed to capture the event structure. Experimentally, it is demonstrated that an event is perceivable only through structure. To capture the event means to conserve its structure. As a result, it is demonstrated that the functional symmetry of a metaphor can be established in the form of attractors evolving in state spaces.
