Опыт корпусного моделирования факторов метафоричности на примере русских глаголов

С. 30-44.

The paper presents a tentative scheme for analyzing and annotating factors that contribute to metaphoricity of verbs.We suggest a wider (in comparison to the VU Amsterdam Metaphor Corpus) inventory of metaphoricity factors which aims to capture the subtle aspects that contribute to metaphoricty in real-world data and which have been disregarded in the attempts to model it in corpus-based studies. The extended inventory includes nonbasic meaning, semantic shifts, newly attested meanings, morphological motivation, switch in the semantic class of the verbal argument from animate to inanimate (different types of personification) and from concrete to abstract, transformations in construction, metonymic argument, participation in idioms, and conceptual mapping. We also attempt to describe the dynamic interactions of these factors within a sentence, and the complex structure of these interactions. The evidence is drawn from 2,036 occurrences of 100 Russian verbs sampled from the Russian syntactically annotated corpus SynTagRus.
