Description This paper not only examines how political strategy as a defining characteristic of terrorism is conceptualized within the metaphor of TERRORISM AS A PATH but it also explores whether this metaphor is equally represented in the corpus compiled from news articles from various German-language media reporting on terrorist attacks in Germany between 2015 and 2017. Using the MAXQDA software, the author analyzed and compared 1,495 text-places featuring lexemes “terror” and/or “terrorism” in the corpus consisting of 1,251 texts. Furthermore, the study emphasizes the need for the intersection of quantitative and qualitative data analysis.
