      The paper analyses metonymically names of capitals in four different languages in order to demonstrate how cognitive linguistics and contrastive linguistics can benefit from each other. They attempt to show that while CL can provide the comprehensive and coherent theoretical foundations contrastive linguistics seems to need for its survival, the latter can function as an excellent testing field to validate the hypotheses or claims put forward by cognitive linguists. The main section of the paper contains a detailed contrastive study of proper nouns. The study focuses on the analysis of the metonymical use of names of capitals to refer to the country political institutions or executive political power. The languages selected are English, German, Croatian and Hungarian. Their results reveal a higher use of the metonymy in English, followed by German, with Hungarian and Croatian being way behind. Cultural differences apart, their point is that the dissimilarities are partly caused by structural facts that may be motivated by deeper conceptual factors. In this paper, they argue that different languages, due to differences in their typological makeup, may use different metonymy types for certain discourse-pragmatic functions. Their final point is to provide a piece of evidence supporting the claim that the role of structural factors and their interplay with cognitive ones (contrary to the prevalent practice in cognitive linguistics) cannot be underestimated. They manage to show that the use of a cognitive process such as metonymy also has something to do with how other areas of the language in question are structured.
