Definition and Examples of Vehicles in Metaphors

In a metaphor, the vehicle is the figure of speech itself–that is, the immediate image that embodies or “carries” the tenor (the subject of the metaphor). The interaction of vehicle and tenor results in the meaning of the metaphor.

For example, if you call a person who spoils other people’s fun a “wet blanket,” “wet blanket” is the vehicle and the spoilsport is the tenor.

The terms vehicle and tenor were introduced by British rhetorician Ivor Armstrong Richards in The Philosophy of Rhetoric (1936). Richards emphasized the “tension” that often exists between vehicle and tenor. 

In the article “Metaphor Shifting in the Dynamics of Talk,” Lynne Cameron observes that the “multiple possibilities” evoked by a vehicle “are both derived from and constrained by speakers’ experience of the world, their socio-cultural contexts, and their discourse purposes” (Confronting Metaphor in Use, 2008).

Mandatory bicycle helmet laws in Western Australia

Australia’s National Cycling Participation 2019 survey confirms that the equivalent of more than a million fewer people are riding bicycles each week in 2019 than in 2011, and suggests 35.1% fewer Australians aged 9yo+ were cycling each day in 2019 than in 1985/86, despite 62% population growth (see report analysis).

Australia’s largest cycling organisation, the Bicycle Network, has reversed its policy and from 31 October 2018 is recommending a five year trial permitting people older than 17 to choose whether they wear a helmet when riding on footpaths or off-road cycle paths (read recommendation and policy paper).

The recommendation follows a 14 month inquiry which had 19,327 respondents, with 58.3% supporting a change to helmet laws and opinions expressed by Australia’s leading experts on helmet law efficacy (read submissions including the opinion of this website).

It is likely the recommendation will be ignored or given short shrift by Australia’s media

What Were Some Types of Transportation in the 1800s?

Transportation in the early 1800s was primarily by horse and sail, but the development and refinement of the steam engine spurred the development of rail and river transportation. Horses and horse-drawn conveyances remained the primary method of transportation through most of the century, at least for local travel. Toward the end of the 1800s, the automobile came into existence, although most 19th-century designs saw very limited adoption.

Before the widespread use of the steam engine, travel by water had to take advantage of wind, currents or manpower for propulsion. Much of the river travel in this period was one-way, as a keelboat or raft could transport goods downstream easily, but upstream travel was arduous. When goods needed to travel against the current of a river, they typically traveled over land. Steamboats allowed vessels to travel against the current, creating the first two-way river-transportation systems.

Railroads proved to be an

Police no longer required to respond to vehicle collisions

The police department is expanding a pilot program all in effort to save resources.

Starting today, things are going to be different if drivers get into a car accident.

Police no longer will be required to show up, if no one is injured.

TRACKER: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut coronavirus cases and deaths 

The department says the goal is to have officers available to respond to other 911 calls faster, especially during this critical time.

The initiative first started last year in March on Staten Island, and after a successful evaluation they found a 9% decrease of 911 calls, meaning other people received help faster.

Police say vehicle collisions resulting only in property damage will not be required to be reported to police.
