Abstract

The article explores metaphor as one of the main rhetorical means in the modern presidential political discourse of the Czech Republic. The use of metaphor in Czech political discourse is not only an effective tool for influencing the subconscious of the addressee, but also a means of ensuring the semantic and emotional integrity of the text. The specifics of the use, the main functions and the thematicity of metaphors were determined from 1990 to 2013 based on the political speeches of the Czech Presidents Vaclav Havel and Vaclav Klaus.
