Example text

In this sentence the verb ‘blast’ is used to refer to the force of one or more utterances in which Clarke forcefully countered the criticisms of those who believed that he could ensure a new electoral victory for the Conservative 1. In their ‘Speech Act classification’ (which includes 4,800 English verbs) Balmer and Brennenstuhl (1981) do not restrict themselves to verbs that have performative uses, but include ‘any kind of (aspect of) speech activity designating verb’ (Ballmer and Brennenstuhl 1981: 16).

Overall, NRSA is not equally distributed within the corpus: the press section has 470 instances, the (auto)biography section has 361, and the fiction section only 154 (see Semino and Short 2004: 73 for a discussion of these differences among our three text-types). However, the proportion of metaphorical NRSAs is very similar across the three genres: 22 per cent for the newspaper section, 17 per cent for the fiction section, and 23 per cent for the (auto)biography section. The majority of metaphorical NRSAs in the corpus involve the metaphorical use of verbs, as in the case of ‘blast’ in example 2.

The expression at sea has, however, given rise to an idiom, the canonical form of which is all at sea.
