User: What is grammatical metaphor?





Weegy: "There is a strong grammatical element in rhetorical transference: and once we can recognize this we find that there is also such a thing as grammatical metaphor, [ where the variation is essentially in the grammatical forms though often entailing some lexical variation as well." (Michael Halliday, An Introduction to Functional Grammar. Edward Arnold, 1994) ]

Grammatical metaphor involves the substitution of one grammatical class or structure for another, often resulting in a more compressed expression.
