30 Zoltán Kövecses The various constituents of the conceptual system (frames, elements of frames, elements of vertical hierarchies) can be connected to each other in a number of ways. I mentioned three essential types: ‘is-connections’ corresponding to identity relations, ‘through-connections’ corresponding to metonymy, and ‘as-if-connections’ corresponding to metaphor. With the help of these distinctions and taking into account the interaction of vertical hierarchies and functional domains (frames), we can resolve some issues relating to metaphoric and metonymic abstract concepts.
