- The paper deals with the scope of conceptual and linguistic metaphors used in economic discourse as they play a crucial role in the process of understanding, interpreting and evaluating of the international economy. The aim of this paper is to investigate the discourse of Economics, reveal the key principals of Conceptual Metaphor Theory and study the phenomenon of conceptualization of the economic processes. The materials for our research are the articles from The Guardian, The Financial Times, The Economist and The Cambridge Journal Economics (2008-2012). Understanding and learning metaphors enable students to master their profession efficiently.
