YUSUF FRANKO’S CARICATURES UNDER THE CONCEPTUAL BLENDING MAGNIFYING GLASS, pp. 451-460
 
The aim of the paper is to show that conceptual blending theory, proposed by Fauconnier and Turner, is equipped with the mechanisms that can explain the construction of the meaning of Yusuf Franko Kusa’s political caricatures. These magnificent cartoons reveal the history of late nineteenth-century Pera. The construction of the meaning of political caricatures involves the construction of a blended space which results in an incongruity that is characteristic of humorous blends. Projections from the blend to input spaces highlight the scenarios within inputs, and as a result we view scenarios in the input spaces from a different perspective i.e. in the light of the comic effect created within the emergent structure.
