О структуре идеализированной когнитивной модели при метонимизации
This paper attempts to offer a framework for a broad stroke interpretation of metonymy as a cognitive process. It offers a critical overview of the phenomenon of metomymy which is termed as a process of mapping of one concept or its part into another concept within the same idealized cognitive models, or ICMs. It is understood that such consepts are discrete mental representations of the features which are sailent parts of an object. Here it is argued that at least in some cases of metonymy different parts of the ICM are processed by category selective brain areas, which is shown by the analysis of the empirical fMRA data collected by N. Kanwisher on domain specificity of the fusiform face area (FFA), as well as of one clinical study of Capgras syndrome – a cognitive dysfunction when patients regard their near and dear as impostors.
