A Cognition-based Comparative Study on the Spatial Metaphor in "上" and "Up"

CHEN YAN-Fang(School of Foreign Languages,Xianning College,Xianning 437005,China)  
Both "上" and "up" in Chinese and English carry with themselves rich spatial metaphor.They help construct abstract conceptions like time,space,condition,social status and class,value,number,quality,level and mood,which are important concepts in our daily life."上" and "up" are quite similar in that they usually have a commendatory meaning.However,such spatial metaphor also has cross-cultural and cross-language differences,whose study can enrich the research on cross-cultural communication and contrastive linguistics.
