Resumen:   This research deals with communication problems caused by cultural differences, especially what Tannen (1984 apud BYRNES, 1986) named 'conversational style'. Several studies show the importance of this factor, since it is not only a linguistic surface structure issue, but it also involves ingrained habits and customs of a linguistic community that wind up emerging within communication. The relationship between language and culture has been the object of extensive research, and it is now consensus that foreign language teachers should not only be concerned with the teaching of standard rules of grammar, but they should also encourage their students to become aware of the systematicity in such communication rules. In this context, considering that discourse is more of a development of a rhetorical argumentation than an expression of someone s thought, the conversational style can be understood as a tool used by speakers in such development or, in other words, in the interlocutor s persuasion. A fact that drew my attention was the frequent difference between titles of American movies and their translation into Portuguese, which I believed to be due to cultural issues. Therefore, in this context, involving rhetorical argumentation and persuasion resources, these titles could be considered metaphorical expressions that would culminate in the creation of some dominant metaphors. The objective of this research is to examine the construction of these dominant metaphors in the persuasive process of titles in Portuguese. To this end, it aims to answer the following research questions: a) What dominant metaphors do the titles in Portuguese suggest? b) What lexicogrammatical choices do the titles rely on? c) How is persuasion supported by the titles in both languages made? Methodologically, a(n) (Critical) Analysis of Discourse approach supplemented by methods of metaphor Analysis supported by Systemic Functional Grammar, a multi-functional theory (HALLIDAY, 1985), indicated by critical scholars of language as the most suitable one for this purpose (FOWLER, 1991; FAIRCLOUGH, 1992; CHARTERIS-BLACK, 2004).
