Tagging tool for Vismet baby corpus

Topic and scope This project aims at investigating what internet users typically tag in metaphorical images. This will plausibly provide an overview of the most salient aspects of visual metaphors, that catch the attention of the non-expert viewer.
Duration 2015 – 2016
Research question This study addresses the question how internet users tag visual metaphors, and what do these bodies of metadata suggest in relation to the cognitive processing of visual metaphors.
Method A tagging tool will be developed within the VisMet Baby corpus of visual metaphors, and participants will be asked to look and tag the images included in this corpus.
