ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to investigate how the discourse metaphor is formed, and what the properties of the discourse metaphor are. In order to investigate them, some problems of conceptual metaphor theory (CMT) need to be raised. Namely, CMT has two major problems; first, CMT is not universal across discourse communities, second, even if CMT insists that linguistic metaphor is just an expression by conceptual metaphor, it may be wrong. It seems necessary to set up the notion of discourse metaphor so as to solve the afore mentioned problems of CMT. Discourse metaphor is a metaphorical projection functioning as discourse convention in a particular discourse community. Discourse metaphor, for example Jeonbotdae, has some distinctive properties. That is to say, discourse metaphor is lexically specific, is combined with a particular word, and the domain in which discourse metaphor is used is relatively fixed.
