Pragglejaz Metaphor Identification Project

This site will soon contain more information about the Pragglejaz metaphor identification project. This is a project co-sponsored by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Resarch (NWO) and the British Academy, and involves the development of a reliable procedure for finding metaphorically used words in natural discourse. The name Pragglejaz derives from the first letter of the first names of the ten original members of the group: Peter Crisp, Ray Gibbs, Alan Cienki, Graham Low, Gerard Steen, Lynne Cameron, Elena Semino, Joe Grady, Alice Deignan, and Zoltan Kövecses.
