- Metaphor is an important form of rhetoric and an important way of human cognition. The use of metaphor in political discourse can play a role in persuading listeners, shaping audience cognition, and constructing relevant policies. Based on this, metaphor becomes one of the important policy tools that politicians rely on and use. On the basis of presenting and analyzing the relevant theories, this paper illustrates the function and application of metaphor in political discourse through the case study of climate change policy construction of Clinton administration and George W. Bush administration.
