This article deals with the question whether metaphors might be integrated into WordNets in a more systematic way. After outlining the advantages of having more information on metaphors in WordNets, it presents the Hamburg Metaphor Database and a possible method for integrating metaphors and corresponding equivalence relations into monolingual WordNets. Finally, problems are discussed that will have to be faced before more metaphor information could be included in WordNets.
