metfo1 is the metaphor,
metfo2 is demetaphorized meaning.

something like "lu lo mi risna ca'o citka mi cu metfo lo du'u mi cinmo su'o
mabla vau mi li'u"

Oh, you are relying on the fact that one can understand the literal meaning
of the metaphor just by reading it, so the actual meaning is the only one
that must be specified.

You need mapping metfo1 to metfo2? then pevna might work here. What kind
of signature do you have in mind?
