A verb is an unsaturated concept ready to be saturated by one or more arguments to form a saturated process. Metaphor, which transfers concepts across conceptual domains, can involve both saturated (processes) and unsaturated (verbs) concepts. As a form of connection, metonymy is restricted to saturated concepts, that is, to processes. This premise has a bearing on an observable consequence in lexical extension: whereas the metaphorical sense of a verb can accept new arguments, its metonymic sense maintains the same, primitive arguments.

Abstract

A verb is an unsaturated concept ready to be saturated by one or more arguments to form a saturated process. Metaphor, which transfers concepts across conceptual domains, can involve both saturated (processes) and unsaturated (verbs) concepts. As a form of connection, metonymy is restricted to saturated concepts, that is, to processes. This premise has a bearing on an observable consequence in lexical extension: whereas the metaphorical sense of a verb can accept new arguments, its metonymic sense maintains the same, primitive arguments.
