Construction and Interpretation of Cognitive Cultural Models of Animal-related Metaphors in Chinese and English

LIN Bao-zhu(Fujian Commercial College,Fuzhou 350012,China)  
From the perspective of cognitive metaphors,the article attempts to construct and interpret the relationship between cognitive cultural models and animal-related metaphors in Chinese and English in the aspects of associative routes,the matching between concepts and forms and the similarity and difference of vehicle and its figurative sense in both English and Chinese.On one hand,it explores how cognitive cultural models guide and constrain the selection of animal vehicles;on the other hand it analyzes metaphorical expressions and then infers the cultural models behind them.These two approaches combined demonstrate the way culture provides for word association co-text,prior text and cohesion.
