Metaphor Analysis Project > About the Metaphor Analysis Project and MetNet

The Metaphor Analysis project is a research project funded by the ESRC's National Centre for Research Methodology. It was awarded to Lynne Cameron and the MetNet Group and runs from 1 May 2006 for six months.

MetNet (the Metaphor Network) is an active group of researchers, currently based in the north of England, investigating the use of metaphor and metonymy in discourse, and developing theoretical approaches to metaphor that go beyond cognitive metaphor theory.
