tract: We tackle the problem of identifying metaphors in text, treated as a sequence tagging task. The pre-trained word embeddings GloVe, ELMo and BERT have individually shown good performance on sequential metaphor identification. These embeddings are generated by different models, training targets and corpora, thus encoding different semantic and syntactic information. We show that leveraging GloVe, ELMo and feature-based BERT based on a multi-channel CNN and a Bidirectional LSTM model can significantly outperform any single word embedding method and the combination of the two embeddings. Incorporating linguistic features into our model can further improve model performance, yielding state-of-the-art performance on three public metaphor datasets. We also provide in-depth analysis on the effectiveness of leveraging multiple word embeddings, including analysing the spatial distribution of different embedding methods for metaphors and literals, and showing how well the embeddings complement each other in different genres and parts of speech.
