THE (MC’S) LIFE IS WAR’: WAYS OF EMBEDDING A CONCEPTUAL METAPHOR OF THE ‘RAP’ TEXT-GENRE IN TWO DIVERGENT CULTURAL CONTEXTS
Languages of publication
This paper focuses on the differences in the use of the conceptual metaphor (RAPPER’S) LIFE IS WAR in German and Brazilian rap lyrics based on the analysis of 150 German and 150 Brazilian rap lyrics. The results reveal crucial differences concerning the mapping of the adversary in both corpora. We will also show that the differences point to divergent discourse contexts, speech act types and speech functions in which each cultural rap style is embedded.
