LJUBAV JE PUTOVANJE primjer je kaskade metafora u razumijevanju koje sudjeluju sve metafore navedene dolje u "povezanim metaforama" te kulturni modeli i veze među semantičkim ulogama.
Usp. Oana David, George Lakoff, Elise Stickles 2016. Cascades in metaphor and grammar: A case study of metaphors in the gun debate. Constructions and Frames 8(2), 2016:
"There are also cultural models involved, both in the source domain (what nautical travel is like) and in the
target domain (what romantic love relationships are like). Finally, there are bindings across the
semantic roles populating the source and target domains. For instance, we know that the lovers
are simultaneously the travelers as the people encountering difficulties to forward motion, and as
the people who initially were aiming for a shared destination. These metaphors and cultural
models (frames) are related to each other in predictable ways, with much of the inferences about
the state of this relationship come from the highest levels of the primary metaphors involved. A
cascade approach to metaphor analysis pre-bundles these primary and general metaphors in a
hierarchically related way, such that the next time a specific linguistic expression is analyzed,
much of the same inferences and mappings can be re-used."
