She sets out a method for semi-automatic identification of metaphors and demonstrates systematic interaction with keywords. Therefore, it keynees be posited that hyperlinks possess a quality of semantic keyness distinct from that indicated by keywords, a keynss which leads to the discussion of the conceptual difference between keywords and key words, the former meaning lexical items kn statistical keyness and the latter items perceived by human readers as key.

The first part presents a theoretical and practical case for closed-class keywords as valid objects of study.
