Using the national corpus of Russian language in metaphor studies

Plisetskaya A.D.
State University – the Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia

The article describes using The National Corpus of Russian Language for metaphor studies. We analyzed the metaphor 'val'utny koridor' (currency corridor) looking into the context of its usage in the media and found out some interesting collocations dealing with the origin of the metaphor. The research can be useful for students learning how to use the national language database.

Keywords: metaphor, corpus, context, concept.

Column: Philology
