Abstract

This article examines conceptual metaphors relating to “the Chinese Dream”, a term popularized after 2013 within Chinese socialist thought that describes a set of personal and national ideals in the People's Republic of China and the Communist Party of China. A semantic analysis was made of the linguistic data of this phrase associated with Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, President of the People's Republic of China, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission. Conceptual Metaphor Theory (CMT), within the field of cognitive linguistics, as investigated by George Lakoff and Mark Johnson (1980), as well as Zoltán Kövecses (2002; 2005), provided the background framework for this article. Data was obtained from three Chinese-language books: Xi Jinping The Governance of China Volumes 1 & 2 and The Chinese Dream of the Great Rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation. Results revealed four categories of conceptual metaphors: (1) [CHINESE DREAM IS A FAMILY] (2) [CHINESE DREAM IS A JOURNEY] (3) [CHINESE DREAM IS A BUILDING] (4) [CHINESE DREAM IS A WAR], as well as other evidence of universal concepts inspired by political leaders. Most importantly, the family metaphor may reflect the unique ideas or views of President Xi Jinping as Chinese supreme leader. Historical, political and cultural factors help form these conceptual metaphors, which are inspirationally employed by Chinese people at home and overseas to participate in the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and to make the Chinese Dream come true as quickly as possible.
