This is the final call for participation in a shared task on metaphor detection held at the workshop on processing figurative language @NAACL2018.

Metaphor is a commonly used form of figurative language. Consider, for example: "In Washington, people change dance partners frequently, but not the dance" (metaphors are italicized). The goal is to classify all content words in a text as being a metaphor or not, as well as a separate classification task just for the verbs.
