A detailed approach has been developed for core aspects of the task of understanding a broad class of metaphorical utterances. The utterances in question are those that depend on known metaphorical mappings but that nevertheless contain elements not mapped by those mappings. A reasoning system has been implemented that partially instantiates the theoretical approach. The system, called ATT-Meta, will be demonstrated. The paper briefly indicates how the system works, and outlines some specific aspects of the system, approach and the overall project.
