Automatic processing of metaphor can be clearly divided into two subtasks: metaphor recognition (distinguishing be- tween literal and metaphorical language in a text) and metaphor interpretation (iden- tifying the intended literal meaning of a metaphorical expression). Both of them have been repeatedly addressed in NLP. This paper is the first comprehensive and systematic review of the existing compu- tational models of metaphor, the issues of metaphor annotation in corpora and the available resources.
