Human Thinking Modes Embodied in the Semantic Features of Metaphor

DONG Ge-fei,YAN Xiao-chuan(Foreign Studies College,Northeastern University,Shenyang 110004,China)  
Metaphor is not only a linguistic,but also a cognitive phenomenon whose semantic features provide a means of getting an insight into human thinking modes.The semantic anomaly of a metaphor refers to the logical semantic incongruity on the surface,which reflects creative thinking.The semantic dispersion refers to the indeterminacy of the denotation of a metaphor,which reflects the open-ended thinking.The metaphoricity of different metaphorical expressions varies in degree.The more frequently a metaphor is used,the less its originality,thus the higher the degree of its conventionality.The degree of metaphoricity reflects the degree of conventionality in thinking.
