Departing from the standpoint of two cognitive linguistic theories, the Metaphor

Theory and the Conceptual Integration or Blending Theory, this paper attempts to

establish their role in the creation and processing of both conventional and modified

phraseological units. It investigates the range of applications and interpretations

of the existing cognitive models, furnishing them with attested phraseological

material to test their efficiency and universality. It is argued that the two theories

can be viewed as complementary: whereas the theory of metaphor is productive

in accounting for a wide range of conventional phraseological units, the theory

of conceptual integration can be consistently applied to the analysis of modified

phraseological units.
