Sažetak
The paper starts from the view that metaphor is not an elaborate figure of speech, but a reflection of how human thought operates, based on the way humans learn and interact with world. The aim of the paper is to contribute to the further development of research devoted to metaphors that make up specialized technical disciplines by exploring the use of metaphor in marine engineering. It builds on similar research on the use of metaphors carried out in civil engineering and architecture in English and Spanish (Roldán-Riejos 2012, Roldán-Riejos & Ubeda-Mansilla 2006, Úbeda-Mansilla 2003). For the purpose of this paper a collection of 25 marine engineering texts in English has been assembled ; including books, manuals, shipboard instruction, operation and maintenance manuals in order to identify and analyse metaphorical expressions that appear in these specialized texts. Thus, the authors have manually extracted the expressions that could be considered metaphorical and adopted a cognitive linguistic approach (Lakoff & Johnson 1980, Fauconnier 1997, Fauconnier & Turner 2002) in their analysis in a bid to show the most significant conceptual metaphors and image mappings underlying the language used in marine engineering terminology and discourse. The most common conceptual mapping found in the aforementioned collection of marine engineering texts is MARINE ENGINE IS A LIVING ORGANISM. Accordingly, the paper focuses on the analysis of the linguistic examples of conceptual metaphors and image metaphors resulting from this mapping.
