Abstract

Metaphor is one of the most productive means by which reality is verbalized. It is also a universal way of knowing and conceptualizing the real world. Metaphor successfully plays the role of a prism through which a person performs an act of worldview and is one of the most expressive speech means, characterized by high information content and semantic capacity. Metaphor as a linguistic phenomenon is found not only in oral speech, but also in writing. The great importance of metaphor lies in its use in works of art. There is not a single author who would not use metaphorical transfer in order to describe heroes, various phenomena and actions in bright colors. The following article is devoted to the study of the use of metaphor in English and Uzbek stories of the XXI century.
