Today, metaphor research is switching from mono-modal to multi-modal, from the study in a single field to the study in cross-over fields, from qualitative study to quantitative study. Especially by such advanced computer-assisted methods or neuroimaging experiments as corpus, ERP, fMRI and eye tracking, it is possible for us to break through the current research on metaphors. It is believed that multi-approaches to metaphor research will surely promote this interdisciplinary study in depth.
