The aim of this paper is to explain, with examples, the function, role, and contribution of modern metaphor theory in relation to foreign language teaching. In that sense, according to modern metaphor theory, a metaphor is not only an element of literature, rhetoric, lecturing, and poetry, but a complete and wholistic segment of human culture that dominates human's cultural experience. In this study, by building onto the work of Lakoff and Johnson, awareness raising towards cultural metaphors is aimed which can contribute to foreign language teaching classrooms.
