The 18 contributions to this volume deal with a variety of ‚tropes', such as metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, irony, euphemism, antonomasia and hyperbole. Using various approaches or paradigms the authors aim to find an answer to the crucial epistemological questions, namely whether and to what extent utterances containing tropes can be said to be true or false.
