VU Amsterdam Metaphor Corpus


The VU Amsterdam Metaphor Corpus is a corpus of news texts, fiction texts, academic texts and conversations that have been coded for metaphor. It is the largest available corpus hand-annotated for all metaphorical language use, regardless of lexical field or source domain and based on a systematic and explicit metaphor identification protocol MIPVU.



The VisMet Corpus is an online resource of annotated images (a corpus) that can be used by students and researchers from different academic fields interested in visual rhetoric, and in particular in understanding, analyzing, and comparing visual metaphors and their configuration with other visual tropes, across a variety of images and genres.
