Abstract: Conceptual metaphor is the systematic mapping of conceptual domains on each other. Love is the most important axis of mystical path. In this paper, all the lines in Moulana's are studied and different words, which are used as alternatives of love, are determined and classified in 11 areas. Then chi-square goodness of fit test is used to investigate and compare the frequency of different areas and words which are used as alternatives of love, separately. Finally, based on the clustering methods, these alternatives are clustered in three (high frequency, medium frequency, and low frequency). The results indicate the word 'fire' and the area 'human' have the highest uses as the alternatives of love.
