Metaphor as a very popular means of stylistic expression is discussed and related problems are addressed: analogy as a mechanism for metaphor formation, the relationship between metonymy/simile/comparison and metaphor, catachresis as a shortened metaphor, the appellativization and onomasticization of metaphors (their functioning as common and proper names), and the privileged status of metaphor among figures of speech.
