Synonymous Literal and Metaphorical Expressions in Discourse

Dataset of Human Judgements on Metaphorical Expressions in Discourse

Synonymous Literal and Metaphorical Expressions in Discourse




Prisca Piccirilli & Sabine Schulte im Walde


This dataset contains 1,000 corpus-extracted discourses for which crowdsourced annotators provided (1) graded and binary judgements on whether they perceived the discourses as more metaphorical or more literal; (2) binary judgements on the choice between a synonymous pair of a literal and a metaphorical expression following the discourses in (1); and (3) lexical terms which triggered their binary decisions in (1). The judgements were collected and analyzed within two studies in
various ways.
