With the rise of the cognitive linguistic view of metaphor, there has been an increase in the number of metaphor studies which was facilitated by the newly found, more prominent role of the phenomenon, not only in language, but also in the human mind. There has been a number of studies into the metaphoricity of various registers, specifically, Steen et al (2010) studied the percentage of metaphorical expressions in conversation, fiction, news and academic texts. The aim of this paper is to compare quantitative results from a specific type of news texts, namely, football match reports, with the more generic sample of news texts analyzed by Steen et al (2010).
