Abstract

Linguistic description of the human body tells us that there is an extensive subsystem of body metaphors, which are used to describe a huge portion of our experience of physical world and mental, inner world. From the study, the part of the body metaphors mostly included in all 12 languages covering the three main parts of the body from head (hair, forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, lips, tongue, ear, chin, etc); body (neck, chest, belly, back, hand, etc.; and leg (foot, buttock, heap, toe, etc.) entwined with other use of symbol and natural metaphors. This list (appendice 1) is by no means exhaustive, but it includes some domains where body metaphors are quite frequent.
