Enrico Mensa, Aureliano Porporato, Daniele P. Radicioni
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Dealing with metaphors has relevant consequences on our ability to build agents and systems that understand Natural Language and text documents: annotating metaphoric constructions by linking the metaphor  ...  elements to existing resources is a crucial step to make text documents more easily accessible by machines.  ...  as, e.g., conversational agents underlying chat bots, automatic summarization systems, and in general for extracting information from text documents and in making text documents machine readable.  ...

Catching Idiomatic Expressions in EFL Essays

Michael Flor, Beata Beigman Klebanov
2018 Proceedings of the Workshop on Figurative Language Processing  
We describe a computational search procedure for automatic detection of idiom-candidate phrases in essay texts.  ...  The study used a corpus of essays written during a standardized examination of English language proficiency. Automatically-flagged candidate expressions were manually annotated for idiomaticity.  ...  metaphors, see Gibbs et al.

Metaphor Generation with Conceptual Mappings [article]

Kevin Stowe, Tuhin Chakrabarty, Nanyun Peng, Smaranda Muresan, Iryna Gurevych
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We assess our methods through automatic and human evaluation for basic metaphoricity and conceptual metaphor presence.  ...  We show that the unsupervised CM-Lex model is competitive with recent deep learning metaphor generation systems, and CM-BART outperforms all other models both in automatic and human evaluations.  ...  These methods involve tagging raw corpora using automatic FrameNet parsing and then inputting some combination of the original text and the FrameNet information into standard embedding algorithms.  ...

A Check on Annotation in Sentiment Research

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
In this area of research, there are still many that need to be explored, such as the use of semi-automatic annotation method that is still very rarely used by researchers.  ...  As for the dataset, there are still many uses of English language taken from social media such as Twitter.  ...  For the tools used, GATE can be used for two types of annotations: manual and automatic, while Domeo can be used by automatic and semi-automatic annotations.  ...

Detecting Figurative Word Occurrences Using Recurrent Neural Networks

Agnieszka Mykowiecka, Aleksander Wawer, Malgorzata Marciniak
2018 Proceedings of the Workshop on Figurative Language Processing  
The paper addresses the detection of figurative usage of words in English text. The chosen method was to use neural nets fed by pre-trained word embeddings.  ...  The obtained results show that simple solutions, based on word embeddings only, are comparable to complex solutions, using additional information as a result of taggers or a psycholinguistic database.  ...  Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.  ...

Rhetorically Controlled Encoder-Decoder for Modern Chinese Poetry Generation

Zhiqiang Liu, Zuohui Fu, Jie Cao, Gerard de Melo, Yik-Cheung Tam, Cheng Niu, Jie Zhou
2019 Proceedings of the 57th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
For metaphor and personification, an automated evaluation shows that our model outperforms state-of-the-art baselines by a substantial margin, while a human evaluation shows that our model generates better  ...  However, to date, it has not been considered in research on automatic poetry generation. In this paper, we propose a rhetorically controlled encoder-decoder for modern Chinese poetry generation.  ...  In particular, the use of metaphor and personification, both frequently used forms of rhetoric, are able to enrich the emotional impact of a poem.  ...

A Tiered Approach to the Recognition of Metaphor [chapter]

David B. Bracewell, Marc T. Tomlinson, Michael Mohler, Bryan Rink
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The first tier is made up of highly precise expert-driven lexico-syntactic patterns which are automatically expended on in the second tier using lexical and dependency transformations.  ...  The final tier utilizes an SVM classifier using a variety of syntactic, semantic, and psycholinguistic features to determine if an expression is metaphoric.  ...  Acknowledgments This research is supported by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) via Department of Defense US Army Research Laboratory contract number W911NF-12-C-0025.  ...

Bigrams and BiLSTMs Two Neural Networks for Sequential Metaphor Detection

Yuri Bizzoni, Mehdi Ghanimifard
2018 Proceedings of the Workshop on Figurative Language Processing  
We present and compare two alternative deep neural architectures to perform word-level metaphor detection on text: a bi-LSTM model and a new structure based on recursive feedforward concatenation of the  ...  We discuss different versions of such models and the effect that input manipulation -specifically, reducing the length of sentences and introducing concreteness scores for words -have on their performance  ...  Acknowledgments We are grateful to our colleagues in the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability (CLASP), FLoV, at the University of Gothenburg for useful discussion of some of the ideas  ...
