Observatory Sick Leave Ends Soon
Tuesday, 2 December 2008
After over a month in bed, the entire staff of the Metaphor Observatory is showing limited signs of recovery. We are currently editing a post comparing the two main metaphor systems used by the media to describe the American campaigns – the race and the battle. This will likely get posted this week, though it was written on the night of the election.
We are also preparing the 2008 Top Ten List of Metaphors, which will be coming out fairly soon as well. This year’s list has been especially difficult to compile, given the enormity and diversity of the issues making the news.
We apologise for our absense.
