Subproject C01

Grammar as a Religious Metaphor

This project focuses on grammar as a source domain for religious metaphors. The project’s aim is twofold: Part 1 is an explorative scrutinizing study based on a number of special texts that show a semantic revitalization of grammatical metaphors; Part 2 will sieve the corpus of the Grammatici Latini in order to feed the TRM and will be an exploration as well, intended to identify further grammatical texts (or parts of texts) providing religious metaphors.
