Abstract

The main part of the paper considers the usage of metaphors that describe people and actions as out-of-place. Three of these metaphors - weeds, disease, and bodily secretions - serve to link order to place and space not only as a descriptive device, but also as a way of thinking and acting. The A. illustrates the significance of metaphor in thought and action by looking at metaphors of displacement and their mobilization in political discourse
