There is growing neurophysiological evidence about the sensorimotor basis of language and concept formation, as theorized by the cognitive linguistics. Conceptual metaphors and their use in the everyday language are discussed, emphasizing both on their universality and their variations in the pathological population. Arguments about the close link between hypnosis and metaphor are given; the opportunity of diagnosing the particular use of metaphors in the particular patient is suggested, in order to build-up a more effective intervention in the practice of ericksonian psychotherapy.
