Name: Course: Instructor: Date: Focusing on one or two approaches to metaphor discuss the implications of the idea that all language is at base metaphorical To further understand the metaphorical aspects of any given language it’s prudent to focus on the basics of structure and classifications. Structure in this sense seeks to identify the similarities of the language and objects so as to create good metaphor. Jacobson for instance draws the structural component of metaphor from the investigations of whether the verbal message is poetic and the poetic function of the spoken language. Essentially the structural component of metaphors involve mapping of a noun from an object to another in a poetic and functional code or system such that the addressee understands the message. This implies that metaphorically language corresponds to six basic factors: emotive conative metalingual poetic referential and phatic. Ostensibly these factors intertwine the functional aspects of is paramount to appreciate the cognitive aspects of language and thought both in you and as systematic processes. In a broader perspective metaphoric understanding of phenomena is stored in mental frames that bring out the coherent organization of human understanding and those that represent categorizations of experience and motivation of other extra-linguistic concepts in life.

Focusing on one or two approaches to metaphor, discuss the implications of the idea that all language is, at base, metaphorical. Essays should offer a clear, coherent and focused discussion of well-defined ideas relevant to the question. Connections between ideas from different theoretical perspectives are encouraged but they should be established effectively in the context of a sustained argument supported by close, analytical reference to literary and/ or cultural texts. In addition to paying close attention to one (or two) literary texts and elaborating points from two theoretical readings, it is recommended that you consult and cite between 6 and ten other pieces of literary and/or theoretical criticism (these can be criticism of the literary texts you use or critical discussions of theoretical approaches relevant to your essay). Do not substantially repeat or recycle work you have done in previous assessments. You may use theoretical approaches you have already discussed as long as your focus is on different aspects of those theories.
