Metaphor: Aphasia is defined by language properties: http://www.Tandfonline.Com/doi/abs/10.1080/10926488.2001.9678900. Understanding figurative terms is in psycholinguistics: http://www.Tandfonline.Com/doi/abs/10.1207/s15327868ms1101_1. Another way is to look at language versus linguistics: http://www.Nsf.Gov/news/special_reports/linguistics/intro.Jsp. Or define metaphor: http://www.Qualitative-research.
