On the Impact of Temporal Representations on Metaphor Detection [article]

Giorgio Ottolina, Matteo Palmonari, Mehwish Alam, Manuel Vimercati
2022 arXiv   pre-print
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that examines the metaphor detection task with a detailed exploratory analysis where different temporal and static word embeddings are used to account  ...  State-of-the-art approaches for metaphor detection compare their literal - or core - meaning and their contextual meaning using metaphor classifiers based on neural networks.  ...  To this end, this empirical study focuses on analyzing the impact of different word embeddings accounting for literal word meaning on the task of metaphor detection.  ...

Metaphors in Text Simplification: To change or not to change, that is the question

Yulia Clausen, Vivi Nastase
2019 Proceedings of the Fourteenth Workshop on Innovative Use of NLP for Building Educational Applications  
Features that capture Imageability and Concreteness are useful when used alone, but within the full set of features they lose their impact.  ...  We present an analysis of metaphors in news text simplification.  ...  We expected the "metaphor-specific" features (IFC) to have a higher impact on the metaphoric than on the literal words.  ...

How Metaphors Impact Political Discourse: A Large-Scale Topic-Agnostic Study Using Neural Metaphor Detection [article]

Vinodkumar Prabhakaran, Marek Rei, Ekaterina Shutova
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present a large-scale data-driven study of metaphors used in political discourse.  ...  While the efficacy of specific metaphors such as the war metaphor in political discourse has been documented before, those studies often rely on small number of hand-coded instances of metaphor use.  ...  To our knowledge, this is the first computational study of this scale on the impact of metaphor use in political communication in a topic-agnostic manner.  ...

2021 SALTeL Journal (Southeast Asia Language Teaching and Learning)  
Finally, the study also indicated that even within the Western context, there is a different use of metaphorical strategies with subtle differences.  ...  The objectives of the current study are threefold: a) to investigate what types of metaphors are used in Arab and Western car advertisements and why they use them, b) to explore how metaphors are used  ...  Finally, at a social practice level, the advertisement of each country is attempting to persuade and manipulate based on their cultural values, variations, and preference to purchase the cars.  ...

Corpus Based Methods for Learning Models of Metaphor in Modern Greek [chapter]

Konstantinos Pechlivanis, Stasinos Konstantopoulos
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we propose a method for detecting metaphorical usage of content terms based on the hypothesis that metaphors can be detected by being characteristic of a different domain than the one they  ...  We then extract from such models a measure of how characteristic of a domain a term is, providing us with a reliable method of identifying terms that are surprising for the context within which they are  ...  We would also like to thank 'Lefkaditika Nea' and 'Thraki' for granting us permission to use their articles for our research and 'Avgi' for offering its content under a creative commons license.  ...

Multi-Task Learning for Metaphor Detection with Graph Convolutional Neural Networks and Word Sense Disambiguation

Duong Le, My Thai, Thien Nguyen
The first mechanism employs graph convolutional neural networks (GCN) with dependency parse trees to directly connect the words of interest with their important context words for metaphor detection.  ...  The second mechanism, on the other hand, features a multi-task learning framework that exploits the similarity between word sense disambiguation and metaphor detection to transfer the knowledge between  ...  Introduction We study the problem of metaphor detection (MD) that aims to identify the metaphorical expressions/words in text.  ...
