Corpora should be used to study metaphors for the same reasons that they should be used for any linguistic research. They help us to search through a lot of data with great speed, they make research replicable, and they give us access to statistics on linguistic phenomena. This chapter will discuss and demonstrate how best to make use of corpora in metaphor research.
