dc.description Data collection has been done by the means of Sketch Engine program. Data were extrapolated from the annotated English web corpus enTenTen20. Data collection and analysis has been done during the period of two months: April and May 2023. Recently, the enTenTen20 corpus has been updated to a newer version - enTenTen21. Nevertheless, the older version is still available, can be worked on and can be compared with the newer one. It has been noticed that the differences between the two versions of the English web corpus did not affect the results of this study. The only apparent difference was seen in slightly different numbers in frequency values for specific collocations. This was expected since the older version of web corpus consists of 36 billion words, while the new version counts 52 billion words. On the other hand, as noted above, these frequency deviations were not significant enough to refute the hypotheses. They have rather confirmed them once again. This study is one of the results of work on a larger scientific-research project called "Metaphorical collocations - syntagmatic relations between semantics and pragmatics". More information about the project is available on the following link: The study has been financed by the Croatian science foundation. Working with the data/replicating the study: Data collected for the purposes of this study is available in CSV format. Data for each gustatory adjective (collocate) is presented in a separate CSV file. Upon opening each file, stretch the borders of every column for better visibility of data. Tables show different collocational bases (nouns) which are found in the corpus, in combination with a specific gustatory adjective, their collocate. These nouns are listed by their score number (The Mutual Information score expresses the extent to which words co-occur compared to the number of times they appear separately). Tables show what type of mapping is present in a certain collocation (e.g., intra-modal or cross-modal). Tables show what type of meaning or cognitive process is working in the background of the meaning formation (e.g., metonymic or metaphoric). For every analyzed collocation, we provided a contextualized example of its use from the corpus, along with the hyperlink where it can be found.
