- In view of the problems existing in the teaching of English transferred epithet, the relevant theories of systemic functional linguistics are introduced to explain them. The paper clarifies the difference between transferred epithet and personification resorting on the thought of linguistic hierarchy, expands the scope of traditional transferred epithet, and points out that transferred epithet has not only ideational function but also interpersonal function according to linguistic functions. Meanwhile, referring to the theory of grammatical metaphor, the paraphrase of epithet transferred is to recover its congruent form in nature.
