Design and Evaluation of Metaphor Processing Systems

Ekaterina Shutova
2015 Computational Linguistics  
For many years, computational work on metaphor evolved around the use of hand-coded knowledge and rules to model metaphorical associations, making the systems hard to scale.  ...  However, computational work on metaphor is considerably more fragmented than similar research efforts in other areas of NLP and semantics.  ...  We use kernels over the lemma, POS tag, and supersense tree representations, the combination which performed best on the dev set in terms of accuracy.  ...
