The project team are in the process of preparing a book of case-studies, based around different semantic areas, which use the Mapping Metaphor project data. This volume is provisionally titled English Metaphor Through Time and Semantic Space and is due to be published by Oxford University Press in 2016. We are also in the early stages of writing a research monograph on metaphor in English.
We also have three freely-available papers online, which discuss the project methodology alongside different semantic areas:
- We have an article in the first issue of the new journal Studies in the Digital Humanities, available via this link.
Alexander, M., and Bramwell, E. (2014) Mapping metaphors of wealth and want: a digital approach. Studies in the Digital Humanities, 1.
- Our paper in the 2013 British Association for Applied Linguistics (BAAL) conference proceedings can be found at this link.
