Sample text

The second thing to notice about the conventional expression at sea is the absence of a determiner. At the sea is also found, though rather rarely; but again, with a different meaning. At the sea denotes the situation of people on land beside the sea: it is synonymous with at the seaside. The distinctions discussed in the previous paragraph have nothing to do with metaphor, for metaphor is defined as a resonant semantic relationship between a primary subject and a secondary subject, and there is no resonance between the sea and the people or things that are at the seaside, on the sea.

On the basis of the analysis of a large set of similar examples, Reddy concluded that speakers of English share a dominant metaphorical conceptualization of communication in terms of the transfer of objects, which he labelled ‘the conduit metaphor’. Within this metaphor, Reddy argued, language ‘functions like a conduit, transferring thoughts bodily from one person to another’ (Reddy 1979: 170). Speakers and writers ‘insert thoughts or feelings in the words’; words containing the thoughts and feelings are transferred to the addressee(s); and finally listeners or readers ‘extract the thoughts and feelings again from the words’ (Reddy 1979: 170).

Examples 11 and 12 show that both verbs also have conventional metaphorical senses whereby the performance of speech acts and the production of texts/utterances are constructed in terms of the transfer of physical objects from one person (the speaker) to others (the addressees). g. g. g. g. g. g. 3 3. As these examples show, the metaphorical expressions relating to transfer tend to be light-verb constructions involving conventional metaphorical uses of verbs that are delexicalised to varying degrees.
