Metaphor as part of the cognitive linguistic theory has penetrated into different fields and different styles of discourses. It can be found in almost all kinds of styles of writing discourses. By studying the developing stages of metaphor, especially by analyzing different kinds of usage of the conceptual metaphor in cognitive linguistics, this paper finds that conceptual metaphor in cognitive linguistics exists a lot in different styles of texts. Metaphors play an important role in both helping the writers express his ideas clearly and understandable and helping the readers have a fluent communication with the writer. Metaphors make the literature works meaningful and lead the readers to a colorful world, where both the readers and the writer can communicate with each other and with the heroes in the works. Metaphors can on the other hand make scientific discourses easy to understand; even those who are laypersons can read through with great interests. Thus it is important for college students to grasp the theory of metaphor while reading, which will help them reading more effectively.
