Abstract
This paper introduces structural metaphor which is a type of conceptual metaphor and proposes another type of conceptual metaphor corresponding to the structural metaphor. It is called reverse structural metaphor since it has externally the same structure as structural metaphor but the property of the target and source domain is reversed. The purpose of this paper is to study and compare these two types of metaphor – structural metaphor and reverse structural metaphor - with specific metaphorical linguistic expressions found in political speeches based on conceptual metaphor theory. Especially, this paper shows that the metaphorical linguistic expressions which have not been explained by the existing structural metaphor and therefore ignored are settled by virtue of reverse structural metaphor. In the process, the characteristics of the reverse structural metaphor to be dealt with as an independent type of conceptual metaphor will be provided.
