Polysemy and sense proximity in the Senseval-2 test suite

Irina Chugur, Julio Gonzalo, Felisa Verdejo
2002 Proceedings of the ACL-02 workshop on Word sense disambiguation recent successes and future directions -  
We apply and extend the method described in (Resnik and Yarowsky, 1999) , estimating proximity of sense pairs from the evidence collected from native-speaker translations of 508 contexts across 4 Indoeuropean  ...  A control set composed of 65 contexts has also been annotated in 12 languages (including 2 non-Indoeuropean languages) in order to estimate the correlation between parallel polysemy and language family  ...  We would also like to thank Adam Kilgarriff, whom we owe the idea of this study, and the ITRI (University of Brighton) for their help and support.  ...

Word Sense Disambiguation Using English-Spanish Aligned Phrases over Comparable Corpora [article]

David Fernandez-Amoros
2009 arXiv   pre-print
The evaluation of the experiment has been carried out against SemCor.  ...  The coverage is low due to several factors; there are important domain differences, and English and Spanish are too close languages for this approach to be able to discriminate efficiently between senses  ...  Acknowledgements We are indebted to Julio Gonzalo for coming up with the idea of applying the noun phrases plus the ILI to WSD and for his advice, and to Fernando Lopez Ostenero for his willing assistance  ...

2022 Semantic Web Journal  
With the rapid growth of lexical resources for specific domains, the problem of automatic extension of the existing knowledge bases with new words is becoming more and more widespread.  ...  We also explore the ways of using deep learning architectures to extend taxonomic backbones of knowledge graphs. We create a number of datasets for taxonomy extension for English and Russian.  ...  The work of Alexander Panchenko, Varvara Logacheva, and Irina Nikishina was conducted in the framework of joint MTS-Skoltech laboratory.  ...

Automatic Wordnet Development for Low-Resource Languages using Cross-Lingual WSD

Nasrin Taghizadeh, Hesham Faili
2016 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
The results show that the induced wordnet has a precision score of 90% and a recall score of 35%‎.  ...  So far‎, ‎wordnets have been constructed for many languages‎. ‎However‎, ‎the automatic development of wordnets for low-resource languages has not been well studied‎. ‎  ...  Structural criteria focus on structural relations among synsets with respect to the wordnet 1.7.  ...

Making fine-grained and coarse-grained sense distinctions, both manually and automatically

MARTHA PALMER, HOA TRANG DANG, CHRISTIANE FELLBAUM
2005 Natural Language Engineering  
We compare the system's performance with our human annotator performance in light of both fine-grained and coarse-grained sense distinctions and show that well-defined sense groups can be of value in improving  ...  Both sets of errors are at least partially reconciled by a more coarse-grained view of the senses, and we present the groupings we use for quantitative coarse-grained evaluation as well as the process  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation, DARPA, the  ...

Automatic construction of frame representations for spontaneous speech in unrestricted domains

Klaus Zechner
1998 Proceedings of the 36th annual meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics -  
Initial results on speech transcripts are promising in that correct mappings could be identified in 21% of the clauses of a test set (resp. 44% of this test set where ungrammatical or verb-less clauses  ...  The system is designed to be robust to deal with the problems of speech dysfluencies, ungrammaticalities, and imperfect speech recognition.  ...  This work was funded in part by grants of the Verbmobil project of the Federal Republic of Germany, ATR -Interpreting Telecommunications Research Laboratories of Japan, and the US Department of Defense  ...

Simple Embedding-Based Word Sense Disambiguation

Dieke Oele, Gertjan van Noord
2018 Global WordNet Conference  
It only requires large unlabeled corpora and a sense inventory such as WordNet, and therefore does not rely on annotated data.  ...  We explore whether additional extensions to Lesk are compatible with our method.  ...  We use UKBs Personalized PageRank method word-by-word with WordNet 1.7 and eXtended WordNet for English, as this setup yielded the best results in .  ...

2014 Computational Linguistics  
We show that our algorithm performs better than other graphbased methods when run on a graph built from WordNet and eXtended WordNet.  ...  We include a detailed analysis of the factors that affect the algorithm. The algorithm and the LKBs used are publicly available, and the results easily reproducible.  ...  Our thanks to Rob Koeling and Diana McCarthy for kindly providing the data set, thesauri, and assistance, and to Roberto Navigli and Simone Ponzetto for clarifying the method to map to coarse-grained senses  ...

Comparing Knowledge Sources for Nominal Anaphora Resolution

Katja Markert, Malvina Nissim
2005 Computational Linguistics  
Specifically, we compare an algorithm that relies on links encoded in the manually created lexical hierarchy WordNet and an algorithm that mines corpora by means of shallow lexico-semantic patterns.  ...  outperforms the WordNet-based method on subsets of the data set; (d) in both case studies, the BNC-based method is worse than the other methods because of data sparseness.  ...  Acknowledgments We especially thank Natalia Modjeska for providing us with her annotated corpus of other-anaphors as well as with the extracted and partially preprocessed sets of candidate antecedents  ...

English Lexical Sample Task Description

Adam Kilgarriff
2001 International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation  
The English lexical sample task (adjectives and nouns) for SENSEVAL 2 was set up according to the same principles as for SENSEVAL-1, as reported in (Kilgarriff and Rosenzweig, 2000).  ...  All discussion below up to the Results section covers only adjectives and nouns.  ...  WordNet 1.7 was not available as a complete object at the time of the gold standard pro-duction, in Spring 2001, but the entries for the lexical sample words were fixed at that point.  ...

Inference of lexical ontologies. The LeOnI methodology

Javier Farreres, Karina Gibert, Horacio Rodríguez, Charnyote Pluempitiwiriyawej
2010 Artificial Intelligence  
The method is formally described and evaluated by means of two implementations for semiautomatically building Spanish and Thai WordNets using Princeton's WordNet for English and conventional English-Spanish  ...  Our method uses a logistic regression model to combine mappings proposed by a set of classifiers (up to 17 in our implementation).  ...  Such Thai word can be mapped to multiple English words (from Thai's perspective) and the meaning of those English words are hypernymous/hyponymous in WordNet.  ...
