Creator Yadav, Neelam
 
Subject metonymy; metaphors; eye; conceptualizations; culture; emotions
 
Description This paper specifically deals with the metaphorical conceptualizations of EYE in Bhojpuri from cognitive perspective. Bhojpuri metaphorical expressions containing the words aankh with all its inflection form (ankhiyaa,ankhiyan,ankhiyan ,ankhiya) will be analyzed with the help of three established cognitive mechanisms, i.e. general conventional knowledge, conceptual metaphors and metonymies. These three mechanisms are regarded as the key elements motivating many metaphors in any language. The aim of this analysis is to show how the eyes are conceptualized by the Bhojpuri speaking people in meaningful ways.
