Chapter 3. Metaphor identification in Dutch discourse
This chapter describes the application of the Metaphor Identification Procedure (Pragglejaz Group 2007) to a corpus of Dutch texts. It explains how this method can be used for identifying metaphorically used words in natural discourse, and how it works for Dutch. Although the original method has been developed on the basis of the English language, it is also applicable to languages other than English. What has to be kept in mind when applying it to other languages, however, is that some language-specific features and tools have to be explicated in more detail. This chapter illustrates MIP in relation to Dutch, and describes Dutch language tools, as well as lexico-grammatical features relevant to the identification of metaphorically used words.
