- According to Martin Rose (2007), logical metaphor can be realized as a conjunction to relate activities and organize texts. However, when doing the translation, the translator probably may ignore this particular element. This study was designed to analyze and compare logical metaphor in the novel Pride and Prejudice and its Indonesian version translated by Sulilawati and Sri Wahyuningsih and published by Shira Media. The research method is descriptive qualitative with content analysis. There are 185 data identified as a logical metaphor, namely: circumstances (102 data), processes (56 data), things (27 data). All the logical metaphors are classified based on the classification of conjunctive relation proposed by Martin and Rose (2007) and Riyadi Santosa (2011). The results revealed that the majority data in the type of logical metaphor as circumstance (69.9%) are maintained in Indonesian translation, as to logical metaphor as process and things, only 55.3%, and 51.9% are still maintained in the target texts. The findings suggest that even though logical metaphor could be maintained their forms in the target text, to keep the consistency between the source text and target text, translator still need to broaden their knowledge in logical metaphor.
