Abstract: People assume that metaphors can only be found in literature. However, indirectly we live in a metaphor, as when we devote our thoughts and feelings in writing and every sentence we speak, we unknowingly use the words of metaphor. This happens because of human thought processes largely metaphorical. The purposes of this study are to find out metaphors in The Jakarta Post and Kompas newspapers, to describe the kinds of metaphors, and to find out the frequency of metaphors found in both newspapers. This study uses qualitative and quantitative descriptive method. The result of this study shows that there are many metaphors identified in The Jakarta Post and in Kompas. Of 100 metaphors identified in The Jakarta Post, there are 26.4% metaphors. And, of 100 metaphors identified in Kompas, there are 31.6% metaphors. Finally, there are 7 types of metaphors identified in The Jakarta Post, namely dead metaphor, absolute metaphor, active metaphor, compound or loose metaphor, dying metaphor, epic metaphor, and unconventional metaphor. In addition there are 8 types of metaphors identified in Kompas, namely dead metaphor, absolute metaphor, active metaphor, compound or loose metaphor, dying metaphor, epic metaphor, synecdoche metaphor, and unconventional metaphor.
