In this paper, we experiment with a resource consisting of metaphorically annotated proverbs on the task of word-level metaphor recognition. We observe that existing feature sets do not perform well on this data. We design a novel set of features to better capture the peculiar nature of proverbs and we demonstrate that these new features are significantly more effective on the metaphorically dense proverb data.

Abstract

In this paper, we experiment with a resource consisting of metaphorically annotated proverbs on the task of word-level metaphor recognition. We observe that existing feature sets do not perform well on this data. We design a novel set of features to better capture the peculiar nature of proverbs and we demonstrate that these new features are significantly more effective on the metaphorically dense proverb data.
