Abstract

Metaphor is important in all sorts of mundane discourse: ordinary conversation, news articles, popular novels, advertisements, etc. This presents a challenge to how Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems understand inter-human discourse (e.g. newspaper articles), or produce more natural-seeming language, as most AI research on metaphor has been about its understanding rather than its generation. To redress the balance towards generation of metaphor, we directly tackle the role of AI systems in communication, uniquely combining this with corpus-based results to guide output to more natural forms of expression.
