Resumen:   This research study provides a contrastive analysis of TM in English and Spanish to show how metaphor is instrumental in conceptualisations in marine biology. Our results highlight the ways in which metaphor varies across languages. This study adopts a cognitive-oriented perspective, and is based on theoretical premises from Terminology and Cognitive Linguistics. Therefore, our work is within the field of cognitive-oriented Terminology. Regarding Terminology, we explore different theoretical models to account for TM and also situate it in regards to data fields such as lexical structure and variants/synonyms. Regarding Cognitive Linguistics, we focus on Cognitive Semantics theories of metaphor proposed within this framework, and use those principles that are relevant for our study. In this respect, the cognitive theories of metaphor and the experientialist view that they advocate can be used to analyse TM. [Source: Author]
