канадская гусиная куртка цена>Family Metaphors

By J.D. Casnig

See Also: Metaphor Lists

The members of a family tree have been used as metaphors in cultures around the world for some time now. Here are a few examples of family metaphors from English. Beside each word is a short sentence using the metaphor, followed by an implication or conclusion that can be drawn from the usage. (This is, by no means, the limit of what can be said of each metaphor). 

The members of a family tree have been used as metaphors in cultures around the world for some time now. Here are a few examples of family metaphors from English. Beside each word is a short sentence using the metaphor, followed by an implication or conclusion that can be drawn from the usage. (This is, by no means, the limit of what can be said of each metaphor). 

Brother 1: 'Sup Bro'...? Shared culture makes for kin.

Brother 2: Brother Paul said his prayers. Shared religion makes for kin.

Brotherhood: International Brotherhood of Steamworkers. Shared purpose makes for kin.

Fraternity: Kevin joined a fraternity at his university. Shared goals makes for kin.

Sister 1: The company had a sister factory in Trenton. Similar purpose makes for kin.

Sister 2: Sister Anne said her rosaries. Shared religion makes for kin.

Sorority: Paula led a sorority at her university. Shared goals makes for kin.

Baby: Rielly played a baby grand. Miniature = baby.

Mother 1: "Necessity is the mother of invention." Invention is a (brain) child.

Mother 2: Mother Superior ordered the nuns to do their chores. Shared religion makes for kin.

Cousin: "The metaphor reminds us that the universe is full of cousins." Shared meaning makes for kin.

Father 1: Protect our fatherland! One's geographical origin is their parent.

Father 2: "Our Father, who art in Heaven...".  God is our (single) parent.

Father 3: Father Patrick celebrated fifty years of service. A religious leader is a parent.

Family: "The Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies". Companies can grow into families.

Infant: The Iraq democracy is in its infancy. Life begins after one is born.

Grandfather: The rights on the property were grandfathered to the new owner. Rights are genetic, and may or may not carry to the next generation.

________________________________________________

Did you know...? In the late 1880's, Johnson & Johnson started making surgical dressings as a means of combatting deadly post-operative infections. The invention, a major leap forward in hospital care, was based on the work of English surgeon Sir Joseph Lister, who used the metaphor "invisible assassins" when describing airborne germs. About a century after Johnson & Johnson first formed, a charitable music group also formed, aimed at famine relief in Ethiopia. The name Band-Aid was chosen, a metaphor for its efforts to help heal a sick nation.

Here's a list of members in the Johnson and Johnson Family of Companies, makers of Band-Aid Brand Adhesive Bandages, among many, many other products. Where you see the words "a Division of...", you see the child of a parent company.
