On the one hand, they demonstrate striking difference thinking of the definitions, the content of the theories, the concerned domains and the practical usage; on the other, they meanwhile show inter-disciplinary connections between the literary text and the cognitive principles, with the literary image supplying the direct materials for the cognitive image, and the cognitive image the theoretical enlightens from the linguistic point of view.
