Firearms and Tigers are Dangerous, Kitchen Knives and Zebras are Not: Testing whether Word Embeddings Can Tell [article]

Pia Sommerauer, Antske Fokkens
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Our experimental approach tests the ability of supervised classifiers to identify semantic features in word embedding vectors and com- pares this to a feature-identification method based on full vector  ...  The idea behind this method is that properties identified by classifiers, but not through full vector comparison are captured by embeddings.  ...  We would like to thank anonymous reviewers for feedback and Piek Vossen for feedback and discussion that helped improve this paper. All remaining errors are our own.  ...

Firearms and Tigers are Dangerous, Kitchen Knives and Zebras are Not: Testing whether Word Embeddings Can Tell

Pia Sommerauer, Antske Fokkens
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 EMNLP Workshop BlackboxNLP: Analyzing and Interpreting Neural Networks for NLP  
Our experimental approach tests the ability of supervised classifiers to identify semantic features in word embedding vectors and compares this to a feature-identification method based on full vector cosine  ...  We conclude that, though preliminary, these results show that our method is suitable for identifying which properties are captured by embeddings. 1 The hypotheses and code for our experiments can  ...  We would like to thank anonymous reviewers for feedback and Piek Vossen for feedback and discussion that helped improve this paper.

"Red in tooth and claw": the representation of animal-human predation and animal attacks in British literature

Harald Schmutz
2020 unpublished
Patterson's The Man-Eaters of Tsavo and du Maurier's The Birds are examined from literary animal studies and ecocritical perspectives with focus on the relation between their representational strategies  ...  In contrast to the other texts, anthropomorphic and zoomorphic representation of predators was found to be prevalent in Crusoe, where predators are also [...]  ...  Such anthropomorphic ascriptions imply an ethical or moral dimension and point to the question if animals are or can be considered moral agents. Can they tell right from wrong?  ...
