Metaphors in audiovisual media receive increasing attention from film and communication studies as well as from linguistics and multimodal metaphor research. The specific media character of film, and thus of cinematic metaphor, remains, however, largely ignored. Audiovisual images are all too frequently understood as iconic representations and material carriers of information. Cinematic Metaphor proposes an alternative: starting from film images as affective experience of movement-images, it replaces the cognitive idea of viewers as information-processing machines, and heals the break with rhetoric established by conceptual metaphor theory. Subscribing to a phenomenological concept of embodiment, a shared vantage point for metaphorical meaning-making in film-viewing and face-to-face interaction is developed. The book offers a critique of cognitive film and metaphor theories and a theory of cinematic metaphor as performative action of meaning-making, grounded in the dynamics of viewers´ embodied experiences with a film. Fine-grained case studies ranging from Hollywood to German feature film and TV news, from tango lesson to electoral campaign commercial, illustrate the framework´s application to media and multimodality analysis.
USA Today Best-Selling Series! A humorous second-chance romance from USA Today best-selling author Kylie Gilmore. Unleash the wild woman...? Ex-cop Ryan O´Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he´s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention she practically works for him, and he didn´t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there´s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take. Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly...hot man she´s avoided for years. Unfortunately she needs the money, and Ryan´s grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and zip lines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan´s rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head and throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

Twelve MinaturesInstrument : piano (6 hands)Nombre de Pages : 32While there is a large range of literature for piano duet, piano pieces for six hands (three players at one piano) are still thin on the ground. This is quite regrettable since three players making music together means a lot more fun and an additional educational teaching method in group lessons. Hermann Regner, a pupil of Carl Orff, focusses particularly on the field of easily playable music for teaching purposes. By using simple new-music techniques, he wants to carefully introduce modern sounds to the players. Having programmatic titles such as ´Dichter Nebel´ [Dense Fog], ´Auf hoher See´ [On the High Seas], ´Unser Specht wird müde´ [Our Woodpecker Becomes Tired], and ´Berg- und Talbahn´ [Switchback Railway], his 12 easy pieces stimulate the imagination of both the player and the listener.Suited for piano students from year 1, adults, and the German competition ´Jugend musiziert´.Content : Please hold - or: Was that the wrong note? - Arm in arm - so many F - Thick fog - On the high seas - Walking bass - The little machine keeps going wrong - Bravo! - Island-hopping - Our woodpecker is getting tired! - Roller Coaster ride - Tango para seis
