The present article studies a new outlook on metaphor which opposes the traditional outlook. Rejecting the idea that metaphors have an absolutely linguistic and literary nature, this outlook, introduced by G. Lakoff and M. Johnson in their work Metaphors We Live By (1980), believes that people make use of metaphors in their daily lives. This article by giving a report of the “conceptual metaphor theory” , deals with the nature, function, and types of conceptual metaphor according to Lakoff and Jhonson.
