With the aim of providing an exemplification of the way in which the Cost-Benefit Cognitive Model accounts for illocutionary meaning, in this article we will focus on the qualitative analysis of the offering high- level situational cognitive model. Data have been retrieved from the WebCorp3. We will pin down the main constructional procedures that instantiate the speaker’s commitment to carrying out a course of action that is beneficial for the hearer, we will describe the semantic make-up in terms of high-level and low-level structures, and finally we will identify some conceptual metonymies that motivate the performance of the offering ICM.
