Exploding the Creativity Myth: The Computational Foundations of Linguistic Creativity

 
Exploding the Creativity Myth: The Computational Foundations of Linguistic Creativity

By Tony Veale

This monograph explores the foundational mechanisms at work in linguistic creativity, and provides coverage of such topics as metaphor, analogy, blending, humor, irony, surprise and incongruity. The approach is grounded in the belief that computers must master the everyday knowledge that is found in cliches, stereotypes and cultural proverbs before they can begin to subvert convention and produce original and thought-provoking outputs of their own. A sample chapter can be found here.
