The purpose of this study was to study how metaphors are used in sports chronicles . As a complement, we also chose to study whether there are gender differences in the use of metaphors. We also wanted to take a look at whether journalists tend to mythologize sports stars with the help of metaphors. We have been using a qualitative study in our work. We chose to examine four sports journalists who writes sports chronicles for the newspaper Aftonbladet. Two males and two females.
In our results, we concluded that metaphors are very common in sports chronicles. We used a metaphor analysis in our study of the chronicles. We also found that gender differences in the use of metaphors is not so big. When we examined the differences between women and men, we started mainly from British Hultén's theory that men are abstract and women concrete in their texts.
