    Metaphors are central to the development of thoughts. They structure and determine our perceptions of reality. Depending on the frame applied, a set of cultural values, interpretations, and expectations can be triggered in the reader’s mind. Built upon the identification of metaphors, this article  presents the dominant news frames in the context of the euro crisis as portrayed in the European  press. In each news story under scrutiny, the first two metaphors are identified and clustered, resulting in five dominant frame packages: war, disease, natural disaster, construction, and game. The  relative occurrence of these frames is compared across ten countries and different types of newspapers. That allows to draw conclusions on the influence of the metaphorical frames in the portrayal  of the euro crisis on the public perception of the crisis.
