Ramsha Shafique, Dr Nijat Ullah Khan, Dr Abdul Karim Khan.


The article focuses on the metaphors of the literary text of The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger using George Lakoff's theory of conceptual metaphor. The research examines how metaphors take linguistically different positions in the text of novels. The research is qualitative in nature and analyses how context-related semantic associations generate different concepts by comparing the target domain and the source domain domains using the cognitive stylistic framework. The researchers found that different idiosyncratic meanings emerged from the reader's perception. He also explored low-key and lucrative denominations. The research will be of great help to the scholars of cognitive stylistics.

Key words: metaphors, George Lakoff, The Catcher in the Rye, Cognition, Mind Mappings.
