"Journalistic metaphors are not similar in nature and use .As for syntactic structure,journalistic metaphors can take up different patterns from the whole sentence with verb 'be' to the word group level. In respect of syntactic behaviour ,some metaphors are resistant to pluralization, passivization,interrogation and modification ,whereas others are less resistant.Semantically,journalistic metaphors can be interpreted differently as containing implicit comparison or mapping between two domains.But, journalistic metaphors tend to be deviant , violate selectional restrictions, and normal collocations which add interest to the text"-- Provided by publisher
