In the field of human experience and meaning-making, metaphor occupies a very well-trodden cabbage patch, whose distinguishing feature is perhaps its wide, interdisciplinary relevance, as well as the prolific produce from this section of the garden. As an element of language, cognition, and literature, metaphor has been examined and theorized by linguists, literary scholars, philosophers, cognitive psychologists, and anthropologists, as well as writers who combine these disciplines into emerging distinct fields, such as cognitive linguistics. There are now several multi-disciplinary projects on metaphor running in the United States of America and the United Kingdom, with at least one devoted to the compilation of a master list of metaphors for the mind.
