Abstract:   (508 Views)
The purpose of this paper is to examine the metaphorical conceptualization of "death" in the Novel "I am alive" by Masoumeh Abad (2014) to find out how a teenage girl who was held captive by the Ba'athist regime in Iraq for 4 years, perceive  and represent the phenomenon of death. This analysis has been done within the framework of conceptual metaphor theory (Lakoff & Johnson, 1980, 1999; Lakoff, 1993) and the findings of the research reveal that the authors have used various conceptual domains including school, fighting, entertainment, journey, disease, natural phenomena, beverage, reward, key, as well as the cognitive mechanisms of personification, animism, and Objectification, all of which are based on metaphor to express the concept of death.
