Resumen: In the present paper, we shall study metaphorical expressions based on the path and container image-schemas and we shall account for how their meaning is derived from (i) the exploration of the structure and logic of the image-schema involved, and (ü) the application of standard principles of conceptual projection and combination. In this connection, we shall make use of the "many-space" model of conceptual projection, as proposed by Turner and Fauconnier (1994, 1996) and of some proposals made by Ruiz de Mendoza (1997ab) concerning principles of conceptual combination.
