The aim of the thesis is to apply the theory in cognitive linguistics to Vietnamese to establish the conceptual structure and conceptual domain “food”, discover the target domains, the source domains, mapping system and the mapping mechanism among the conceptual domains; codifying metaphorical notion of "food" in Vietnamese in order to study cognitive characteristics and Vietnamese cultural identity through conceptual metaphor of "food”.
In this paper we provide a formalization of a set of default rules that we claim are required for the transfer of information such as causation, event rate and duration in the interpretation of metaphor. Such rules are domain-independent and are identiﬁed as invariant adjuncts to any conceptual metaphor. We also show a way of embedding the invariant mappings in a semantic framework.

The obvious alternative to polling for data is to dis-
tribute that data, as it becomes available, to lists of
subscribers. This approach may be adequate for small
subscription lists (for example, e-mail lists), but it will
not scale to accommodate the growing subscription de-
mands of Web site syndication. Furthermore, while such
an approach may reduce the overall bandwidth usage of
RSS (by reducing unnecessary fetches), it does nothing
to alleviate the per-update stress on network links close
to the source.
