Marie Curie funded COGVIM project started

bolognesi_mariannaThe Marie Curie funded COGVIM project has just kicked off, led by dr. Marianna Bolognesi (UvA), and supervised by prof. Gerard Steen (UvA).

The aim of the project is to compare structure and functioning of the visual and the verbal modalities of expressions of metaphor, so to ground visual metaphors in the conceptual system.



This will be achieved through an interdisciplinary method that brings together psychological data elicited from participants, as well as large scale semi-automated analysis of words across a corpus of language and a corpus of annotated images.
