SKEUOMORPHS AND THE CONCEPTUALISATION OF THE DIGITAL WORLD Metaphor research has yet to embrace much of the digital revolution and what it means for how we shape concepts, to what extent there are—near—universal elements, and to what extent there are local or cultural diversities when creating meaning around similar digital artefacts. Ritchie (2013, p. 79) mentions that ‘[t]‌he Internet has yielded a raft of culturally based metaphors, although given worldwide adoption of computer technology these are likely to be quite widespread’, but does not emphasise a culturally differentiated conceptualisation of digital technology and phenomena.

Furthermore, the emphasis in CMT on the metaphor as essential for thought points out what Gibbs (2014, p. 30) calls ‘the social nature of ordinary thinking’, which has not been at the core of this theoretical development, but is an element I focus here. Gibbs claims that it may be impossible to disentangle private metaphoric thought from metaphoric social action: Even if metaphoric concepts are essential for certain aspects of abstract thought, they typically emerge in specific contexts in which people attempt to better coordinate their own actions and their interactions with other persons.

Conceptual metaphor theories collide with a more formal approach to meaning and truth. A formal approach underlines the objective, literary, and linear thinking where metaphors are considered merely colourful figurative linguistic symbols or expressions, used to express a point clearly. This includes law and legal thinking. Robert Tsai writes: Legal scholars have traditionally understood metaphor as, at worst, a perversion of the law, and at best, as a necessary but temporary placeholder for more fully developed lines of argument.
