This chapter analyzes metaphor use in specialist discourse by comparing anger
and love metaphor use in experts in the domain of psychology in two different
genres, online counseling and academic lectures. The study is based on two
small-scale corpora that comprise written and spoken language and were compiled
for an exploratory investigation. The analysis of linguistic and conceptual
metaphors in the discourse contexts in which the metaphors are used brings
out interesting differences in the experts’ metaphor use for love and anger
between the two genres. I argue that these differences are probably due to the
distinctive groups of participants as well as the different discourse structures
and goals in the psychology genres, online counseling and academic lecturing.
