Abstract

Metaphor has been studied from different perspectives. During recent years, with the development of cognitive linguistics, many studies in philosophy and linguistics on metaphor have shifted the focus of scientific inquiry from a strictly linguistic plane to a cognitive - based stance. Conceptual metaphor has been explored from various perspectives including the types, the nature, the experiential basis and its three basic functions. But few studies have focused the attention on its cohesive and coherent functions in discourse. This paper focuses on the cohesive and coherent functions of metaphor in discourse.
