This chapter explores the metaphors used for creolization in order to discover how cultural creolization is theorized. It explains that contemporary creolists use metaphor when characterizing forms and processes resulting from different combinations of cultural components of different provenances. The large collection of metaphors shows numerous patterns of the mixture of cultural forms and their change into new entities where cultural elements of various provenances may continue to exist.

Keywords:   creolization, metaphors, cultural forms, cultural components, cultural elements
