Summary:

Linguistic creativity and metaphoricity are unique qualities of human beings. The book has attempted to shed light on the creative usage of idioms from linguistic, psycholinguistic, and cognitive linguistic perspectives. Besides, genre/discourse theory is integrated into the analysis in order to explain idiomatic creativity from the point of view of identity construction and the relation between the writer and the discourse community.
