  • Mô tả: Metaphor has attracted the attention of scholars interested in language, especially rhetoricians and literary critics, for more than 2000 years. Traditionally, metaphor was viewed as a matter of language, as a set of extraordinary or figurative linguistic expressions only used in literature with the aim to embellish discourse. However, cognitive linguistics presents a different view of metaphor, stating that metaphor, in its broad sense, is pervasive and essential in language and thought. It is defined as understanding one abstract conceptual domain (target domain), in terms of another concrete conceptual domain (source domain). The concept of life has been one of the most common target domains, which is hard to fully comprehend without establishing a set of mappings, i.e. a set of systematic correspondences, between this undelineated notion and other better-known one. Therefore, this study attempts to probe into conceptual metaphors denoting life in American and Vietnamese short stories from 1975 to 1991 from the perspective of cognitive linguistics. Basing on a relatively considerable number of collected data, the author makes an investigation into the similarities and differences in the use of these conceptual metaphors in both languages, in the hope to contribute a part to the process of foreign language teaching and learning, and translation practice
