Over the past 30 years, metaphor has been studied mainly within the framework of Conceptual Metaphor Theory. In this framework, metaphor is seen as a linguistic expression of underlying conceptual structures in thought. Gudrun Reijnierse studies the communicative dimension of metaphor within the developing theoretical framework of Deliberate Metaphor Theory.
