Brief description

Continuation of the pilot project “Computer-aided indexing of metaphors in theory-language educational text corpora”. A more robust solution for automated metaphor detection is currently being worked on, which, in contrast to conventional methods, requires a neural network and word embeddings without further background corpora.
