Abstract

This article aims to study emotion metaphors found in selected Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and compare them with conventional modern metaphors from current dictionaries and other sources, in order to find out whether medieval emotional metaphorical concepts have survived up to the present-day, and if yes, what changes can be perceived in them. The study is based on the cognitive theory of metaphor, as developed by Lakoff and Johnson in “Metaphors We Live By”.
