Abstract
The aim of the present study is to identify the extent to which English conceptual metaphors presented in Lakoff (1980 & 1987) apply in the framework of Japanese. In addition to that, certain Japanese conceptual metaphors not present in English are identified and analyzed. The study uses mainly a corpus of written Japanese and a two dictionaries as data sources. The results have shown that the English and Japanese repertoire of conceptual metaphors are very similar in most cases. Metaphors of love, anger and argument display striking similarities across the two languages. Japanese however possesses a number of metaphors not present in English, the most prominent one being the concept of “path”.
