Abstract
This paper studies conceptual metaphors with reference to ‘orientation’ in political speech, especially American and Korean presidents’ inaugural addresses. Only two kinds of spatial orientation for the metaphors in the presidents’ inaugural addresses are found: vertical and horizontal orientation, and there exist 11 types of orientational metaphor in total. Depending on the types, this paper analyzes metaphorical linguistic expressions and figures out the connotation of them. Besides, the rationale behind each type of orientational metaphors is explored. In this way, this study shows how the orientational metaphors are applied to political speech and finds out what their characteristics are, from the cognitive linguistic perspective.
