  • A computational approach to metonymy and metaphor is proposed that distinguishes between them, literalness, and anomaly. The approach supports Lakoff and Johnson's (1980) views that metonymy and metaphor are quite different phenomena, that in metonymy an entity stands for another, whereas in metaphor an entity is viewed as another.
