In other words, the information represented by the deleted items must be recoverable for purposes of interpretation by the semantic component. Before providing examples of such deletions, we need to stress that the final form of the metaphor, with or without deletions, can be one of the most important aspects of the style of a sentence. In Saha (1968, 1978) it is suggested that style is the way language is used in a text, and if this basic assumption is correct all discussions of style must be sensitive to the presence or absence of metaphorical language in a given text and to the way metaphorical language aids or hinders thematic development in a text.

Since metaphors occur in all languages, we need a systematic device of this kind rather than an ad hoc treatment that views metaphor as some kind of a deviation from a normative pattern. After a metaphor reaches the surface level and we have a sentence like (3) or (6) that can actually be written or uttered, we may, as Perrine (1975) points out, perform anyone of four operations for specific stylistic or literary purposes. We can (a) leave things as they are 48 P. K. SARA by retaining both Nom 1 and Nom 2, (b) delete Nom 1, (c) delete Nom 2, (d) delete both Nom 1 and Nom 2.
