The aim of this paper is to illustrate the role of metaphor in scientific communication. The paper comments on the research carried out by Huang (2005) on the metaphors of AIDS identified in a corpus of scientific articles. The author argues that Huang's paper could be seen as a good example of what the analysis of metaphor has to offer to the field of terminology.
