@TECHREPORT{AICPub713:1979, AUTHOR={Hobbs, Jerry R.}, TITLE={Metaphor, Metaphor Schemata, and Selective Inferencing}, ADDRESS={333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025}, INSTITUTION={AI Center, SRI International}, MONTH={Dec}, NUMBER={204}, YEAR={1979}, KEYWORDS={Natural Language!Metaphor}, ABSTRACT={The importance of spatial and other metaphors is demonstrated. An approach to handling metaphor in a computational framework is described, based on the idea of selective inferencing. Three examples of metaphors are examined in detail in this light–a simple metaphor, a spatial metaphor schema, and a novel metaphor. Finally, there is a discussion, from this perspective, of the analogical processes that underlie metaphor in this approach and what the approach says about several classical questions about metaphor.} }
