Проблема соотношения концептуальной и выразительной метафоры и сравнения

The paper considers the problem of correlation between expressiveness and conceptuality of metaphors and similies. Similarities and differences of metaphors and similies are analyzed with reference to the definition of the notions of “trope” and “figure of speech”. Different approaches to the study of metaphors and similies are presented: traditional and cognitive. Having analyzed the nature of metaphors and similies in the light of the dictemic theory and having considered the examples of metaphors and similies in different texts, the author introduces the notion of conceptual expressive stylistic device.
