Chapter 1. An assessment of metaphor retrieval methods
This chapter offers a quantitative assessment of different techniques and tools for retrieving metaphors from large electronic corpora. These are (i) reading parts of a larger corpus in order to find candidates that are then sought for in the whole corpus; (ii) searching for metaphors using different search terms; (iii) looking for metaphor clusters; (iv) finding metaphor candidates through keywords; (v) finding metaphor candidates through the Metaphor Candidate Identifier; and (vi) finding metaphor candidates by computing semantic relatedness between neighbouring words.
