If a metaphor is the act of giving a new meaning to a word formally used to mean something else, then did the word "me" at one time mean "body?" What word or meaning was used in a new metaphorical sense to create "me" as we now understand it? And what was the second word or meaning that it was combined with to come up with a third meaning "me?"
I could not find an example of a metaphor that was an entirely new word.
Thank you for your help.
