520 3  The literary imagination may take flight on the wings of 
       metaphor, but hard-headed scientists are just as likely as
       doe-eyed poets to reach for a metaphor when the 
       descriptive need arises. Metaphor is a pervasive aspect of
       every genre of text and every register of speech, and is 
       as useful for describing the inner workings of a "black 
       hole" (itself a metaphor) as it is the affairs of the 
       human heart. The ubiquity of metaphor in natural language 
       thus poses a significant challenge for Natural Language 
       Processing (NLP) systems and their builders, who cannot 
       afford to wait until the problems of literal language have
       been solved before turning their attention to figurative 
       phenomena. This book offers a comprehensive approach to 
       the computational treatment of metaphor and its figurative
       brethren - including simile, analogy, and conceptual 
       blending - that does not shy away from their important 
       cognitive and philosophical dimensions. Veale, Shutova, 
       and Beigman Klebanov approach metaphor from multiple 
       computational perspectives, providing coverage of both 
       symbolic and statistical approaches to interpretation and 
       paraphrase generation, while also considering key 
       contributions from philosophy on what constitutes the 
       "meaning" of a metaphor. This book also surveys available 
       metaphor corpora and discusses protocols for metaphor 
       annotation. Any reader with an interest in metaphor, from 
       beginning researchers to seasoned scholars, will find this
       book to be an invaluable guide to what is a fascinating 
       linguistic phenomenon.
