Différence pragmatique entre métaphore et comparaison

Abstract : Considering metaphor as an elliptical comparison is the best way to ruin their difference because it implies that the two operations have the same deep structure and that the surface structure of the metaphor is only a transformation of that of the comparison. Metaphorizing and comparing taken as an act of language reveals their difference: metaphor prevents language from being caught off guard by allowing to say the unspeakable and the comparison is in the cognitive register by passing from the unknown to the known.
