When preparing this paper for publication, we discovered a possible confound in the stimuli: in eight words (two nouns, two verbs, and four adjectives) metonymic senses were derived from metaphorical senses while in the other 40 words metonymic senses were derived from literal senses. We excluded these eight words from the analyses and reanalyzed the participants’ correct classifications and misclassifications. All but two effects are the same: in the correct classifications analysis, we did not find the interaction between the effects of word class and participant type within adjectives; in the misclassification analysis, verbs did not differ from nouns in the amount of metonymic-metaphorical misclassifications. These changes do not influence our conclusions.
