This paper takes up the idealized cognitive models (Lakoff, G., 1987) used in mass media about the breaking of the terrorist group ETA's truce: PEACE IS A WAY, TERRORISM IS AN ILLNESS, etc. The article starts by describing the metaphoric and metonymic aspects of idealized cognitive models. The rest of the article reviews some of the aspects of the comprehension of metaphors, such as cognitive acquisition, implicatures, and inferences.
