 Abstract
The paper aims to highlight the importance of analogy, co-textual markers and contextual inferences in the interpretation of conceptual metaphors. The study has been conducted on authentic texts, namely excerpts from the three Presidential Debates in 2008 America. The linguistic approach draws upon Lakoff's and Goatly's cognitive theories on metaphor, as well as Grice's Maxims of Conversation.

 Rezumat
Lucrarea îşi propune să evidenţieze importanţa analogiei, a itemilor co-textuali şi a inferenţelor pragmatice în interpretarea metaforelor conceptuale. Studiul s-a efectuat pe un corpus de text autentic, şi anume extrase din cele trei dezbateri prezidenţiale din Statele Unite ale Americii, 2008. Abordarea lingvistică se inspiră din teoriile cognitive asupra metaforei susţinute de Lakoff şi Goatly şi din maximele conversaţiei formulate de Grice.
