This paper describes the theoretical background, methodology, tasks, results, and challenges of the MetaNet.HR (Croatian Metaphor Repository) project. It combines a theory-driven introspective top-down approach that analyzes the system of conceptual metaphors in the Croatian language (following the methodology of the MetaNet project) with a bottom-up corpus-based approach that analyzes how metaphors are used in language corpora. The project involves linguistic, computational, and psychological tasks. The main result of the project is a figurative language database – MetaNet.HR (http://ihjj.hr/metafore/). This database lists conceptual metaphors and metonymies decomposed into source-target relations among cognitive primitives, image schemas, and semantic frames, which are further decomposed into semantic roles. The database includes annotated metaphor examples and links to experiments, if applicable.
Keywords: MetaNet.HR, cognitive primitives, image schemas, semantic frames, primary metaphors, complex metaphors, metaphor families
