Beata Beigman Klebanov, Chee Wee (Ben) Leong, Michael Flor


Abstract
We present a corpus of 240 argumentative essays written by non-native speakers of English annotated for metaphor. The corpus is made publicly available. We provide benchmark performance of state-of-the-art systems on this new corpus, and explore the relationship between writing proficiency and metaphor use.
