A rose is a rose is (not) a rose : De l’identification métaphorique ?

Abstract : The author focuses his attention on the nature of the identification which is supposedly at the root of metaphorical enunciation, as well as on the nature of BE found in metaphorical utterances. Is it a marker of identification, of equivalence, or rather a locative or existential BE? He uses two cognitive linguistic theories (Conceptual Metaphor Theory and Blending Theory) and tries to give an answer on the linguistic and on the cognitive levels. He concludes by showing that there are few cases of identification during metaphorical enunciation as the metaphorization process is more often based on differences than on similarities.
