Abstract
Conceptual metaphor is not just a rhetorical device of language, but also it is really a universal way of thinking for human beings to recognize and make expression about their world experience. Network catchwords, a newly kind of language form emerging these days with the rapid development of intelligent devices and the universal use of network, are one of the main elements of language. The author here is to make an exploration into the cognitive function of conceptual metaphor in network catchwords in two aspects, organizing conceptual system and derivative terms and organizing cultural connotation and social trends in network catchwords, by a series of network catchword examples. And this essay will provide readers a deep understanding of the newly prevailing network catchwords in a novel perspective of conceptual metaphor.
