Some Anger Metaphors in Spanish and English. A Contrastive Review
Soriano, Cristina
International Journal of English Studies, v3 n2 p107-122 2003
In spite of being very similar, the metaphorical models of anger in English and Spanish exhibit some differences too. These have been analyzed along a number of parameters: existence of the mapping in the language, degree of conceptual elaboration, degree of linguistic conventionalization and degree of linguistic exploitation. A number of examples evidencing cross-linguistic differences at these four levels will be presented. We will conclude with a brief discussion of the possible motivation of these differences and some observations on the study of conceptual metaphor in general.
