MEDIA REVIEWS
"The content is accessible for students new to the field of corpus linguistics and metaphor: concepts are clearly defined and backed up with thought-provoking examples from the corpus data. The book is also relevant to established scholars in the field as it provides a novel and fascinating insight into the socio-cultural roots, and evolution, of traditional and contemporary metaphors in Chinese entertainment news writing. In sum, the book provides a valuable contribution to the field of corpus linguistics and metaphor." (Shirley Anne Paul, Metaphor and the Social World, Vol. 6 (2), 2016)
