ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to characterize the organizational metaphors by analyzing language examples used by the chief managers of the military police and the police organization and compare the two organizations. The results of this study through metaphor analysis were as follows. First, the characteristics of the military police and the police organizations are periodically different when it comes to the use of metaphors. Second, the chief managers of the police organization rely on a diverse metaphor, keeping up with the times. Third, the chief managers of the military police lack understanding of metaphors and have limitations when they try to sympathize with their members about their main polices. Fourth, from an organization metaphor analysis, it is found that both the military police and the police organizations have often used machine and culture related metaphors throughout the history.
