Abstract

The involvement of sensory-motor system in abstract language comprehension has been verified by numbers of studies. However, the role of action simulation in metaphor comprehension is still controversial. The present study examined the role of action simulation in Chinese metaphor comprehension by action-sentence compatibility task. Participants were asked to respond by a hand or foot when the sentence was meaningful. The results showed that the responses to foot-related metaphorical sentences were significantly slower than those to hand-related and mouth-related metaphorical sentences when using a foot to respond. We speculated that hand action were overlearned and overused in daily life, therefore there was no inhibition of hand action simulation to the responses of hands, but only inhibition of foot action simulation to the responses of feet. In addition, there was no inhibition in literal sentence comprehension, which implied that implicit action simulation was more necessary in abstract metaphor comprehension.
