Mapping metaphor

Posted by Mapping Metaphor on the 2nd of May 2013

Welcome to our blog!

Here we will be writing about our project, Mapping Metaphor with the Historical Thesaurus, and about metaphor more generally. You can find out more about the project and the team here. The project is funded by the AHRC.

In about a year’s time, we’ll be putting our ‘Metaphor Map’ resource online. Right now, we have two main tasks: one is to analyse all of our data (and we have a lot, as our data source, the Historical Thesaurus, contains nearly 800,000 word senses!); and the other is to plan what the final Map will do and how it will look.

Thanks for reading! Looking forward to your comments.
