Dissertation note: Tesi di diploma di 1° livello per la Classe delle Lettere e delle Scienze Sociali Diploma di 1° livello Scuola Superiore di Catania, Catania, Italy 2010 A.A. 2009/2010 Abstract: This dissertation has been written to analyse a device like a metaphor. To succeed in describing it, we need to go backwards to explain what cerebral areas are involved in the phases of language like production/comprehension; then we try to distinguish between literal and nonliteral language (also defined as figurative language). In chapter two, we discuss some of the main famous theories about the metaphir, and we try to show scientific evidence for demonstrating their truthfulness. In conclusion, the main focus is to give a clearer definition of a metaphor, because it is a very famous phenomenon, but it is also difficult to understand it.

This dissertation has been written to analyse a device like a metaphor. To succeed in describing it, we need to go backwards to explain what cerebral areas are involved in the phases of language like production/comprehension; then we try to distinguish between literal and nonliteral language (also defined as figurative language). In chapter two, we discuss some of the main famous theories about the metaphir, and we try to show scientific evidence for demonstrating their truthfulness. In conclusion, the main focus is to give a clearer definition of a metaphor, because it is a very famous phenomenon, but it is also difficult to understand it.
