Elizabeth Sayrs, Narrative, Metaphor, and Conceptual Blending in "The Hanging Tree"

Example 4. "Location Event-Structure Metaphor" (George Lakoff and Mark Johnson, Philosophy in the Flesh, 179)

The Location Event-Structure Metaphor
States Are Locations (interiors of bounded regions in space)
Changes Are Movements (into or out of bounded regions)
Causes Are Forces
Causation Is Forced Movement (from one location to another)
Actions Are Self-propelled Movements
Purposes Are Destinations
Means Are Paths (to destinations)
Difficulties Are Impediments To Motion
Freedom of Action Is The Lack Of Impediments To Motion
External Events Are Large, Moving Objects (that exert force)
Long-term, Purposeful Activities Are Journeys
