Welcome to CAN!

CAN is a collaborative annotation interface that allows users to easily tag their texts for idiomatic expressions that are used metaphorically in text.

CAN is currently in demo mode, and shows select entries featuring metaphors in cancer discourse.

The metaphor database is broad and includes primary metaphors as well as hundreds of general and specific metaphors across multiple domains. Data available for now is in English and Spanish.
