Finding metaphorically used words in natural discourse
This paper aims to present the application of a new method for metaphor identification in discourse, the Pragglejaz Metaphor Identification Procedure, in two corpus-linguistic projects. It provides background information to the method and then demonstrates its basic workings by means of three examples. Then some major issues with the method are discussed in more detail: the nature of units of metaphor analysis, the identification of contextual and basic meanings of words in lexical units in discourse, the role of etymology in determining basic meanings, and the role of distinctness as well as similarity required for metaphorical word meaning.
