Example text

We will now offer a brief preview of the rest of the book. First of all, Chapter 2 will present MIPVU, our detailed set of instructions for linguistic metaphor identification that are an elaboration and refinement of MIP. This is the set of instructions that has emerged from our empirical research and  A Method for Linguistic Metaphor Identification which has been applied in our empirical work on some 190,000 words of English discourse and some 130,000 words of Dutch discourse. The subsequent chapters in the book present the details of our application of MIPVU.

That is, they are not phrasal verbs Chapter 2. MIPVU  according to the dictionary. An example is look up in a sentence like “she looked up into the sky”. Here up is coded as AVP in the BNC, suggesting that this is a proper phrasal verb. However, the Macmillan dictionary tells us that the contextual meaning – “to direct your eyes towards someone or something so that you can see them” – is not one of the meanings of the phrasal verb (unlike, for instance “to try to find a particular piece of information”).

It is presented in the Macmillan dictionary as monosemous between animal and artefact. If we suspect that there is a problem with the dictionary description because of its function as an advanced learners’ dictionary, we check the evidence in a second advanced learners’ dictionary, Longman. For instance, the verb to groom does not have distinct senses for people and animals in Macmillan, but it does in Longman; as a result, we rely on Longman to conclude that the two senses are sufficiently distinct.
