About the Author

JONATHAN CHARTERIS-BLACK is Senior Lecturer in Applied Linguistics at the University of Surrey, UK. He has published extensively in the areas of figurative language, corpus linguistics, cognitive semantics and English for specific purposes. He is the author of Corpus Approaches to Critical Metaphor Analysis, published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2004.


'Overall...this book is highly recommended for readers interested in questions of political discourse or language, particularly given its methodological contribution to a field dominated by issues and texts of abstract theorisation.'- Lee Jarvis, Political Studies Review

'[T]he book raises major questions for discourse scholars. Regarding materials, Charteris-Black strives for balance between UK and US leaders from both the left and right, and it is refreshing to see a scholar who has no obvious axe to grind.' - Discourse & Communication
