This paper concerns a number of difficulties which arise from trying to reconcile the theory of conceptual metaphor with particular metaphorical cases. The problems are of various types - for instance, some concern data while others concern metatheoretical questions about the relationships between metaphors - but all are addressed by an account which treats complex metaphors as "compounds" decomposable into "primitives".
