Abstract

The objectives of this research were to find out the five concepts of lexical metaphor, namely: noun-noun, noun-verb, noun-adjective, comparing two social concepts and sound concept. This research was conducted by using qualitative descriptive design. It took twenty headlines taken randomly from daily newspaper The Jakarta Post which were published in November until December 2014. The findings of data analysis showed that the total numbers of lexical metaphor in headlines of The Jakarta Post were: 15 (38.46%) noun-noun, 15 (38.46%) noun-verb, 8 (20.51%) noun-adjective, 1 (2.56%) comparing two social concepts, and no sound concept found. The most dominant are noun-noun and noun-verb with the same percentage (38.46%). Noun-verb means that the headline maker described that news as the move or alive and having certain process, and noun-noun means the headline maker described that news refers to a person, a place or a thing, a quality or an activity.
