In other word metaphors are not imposed as extra linguistic elements on ordinary language rather they are a necessary part of language they distinguished as the main elements of the texts expanding and elaborating the topic of the texts.

Accordingly, this paper tries to illustrate different model of conceptualizing metaphor.
