Abstract:This paper focusses on the concept of `grammatical metaphor' as it is conceived of in the framework of systemic functional linguistics. After an illustration of major sub-types of grammatical metaphor, the concept is explained in relation to lexical metaphor, using onomasiological and semasiological perspectives as two complementary viewpoints on metaphorical meaning in general.
