Abstract

This research's goal is to study the names of the 'eyelid' in the Iberio-Romance languages, after having examined the data contained in the linguistic atlases of Spanish, Catalan, Galician and Portuguese. The results allow us to say how valuable the linguistic atlases are in order to consider metaphor and metonymy as the two most frequent procedures of popular lexical creation.
