Representation of Word Sentiment, Idioms and Senses

Giuseppe Attardi
2015 Italian Information Retrieval Workshop  
For certain tasks however it is important to represent contrasting aspects such as polarity, different senses or idiomatic use of words.  ...  We present two methods for creating embeddings that take into account such characteristics: a feed-forward neural network for learning sentiment specific and a skip-gram model for learning sense specific  ...  Partial support for this work was provided by project RIS (POR RIS of the Regione Toscana, CUP n° 6408.30122011.026000160).  ...

To better evaluate our models, we also construct an idiom-enriched sentiment classification dataset with considerable scale and abundant peculiarities of idioms.  ...  In this paper, we propose an idiomaware distributed semantic model to build representation of sentences on the basis of understanding their contained idioms.  ...  This work was partially funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China (No. 61532011 and 61672162), Shanghai Municipal Science and Technology Commission (No. 16JC1420401), and Young Elite Scientists  ...

A Generalized Idiom Usage Recognition Model Based on Semantic Compatibility

Changsheng Liu, Rebecca Hwa
We propose a novel semantic compatibility model by adapting the training of a Continuous Bag-of-Words (CBOW) model for the purpose of idiom usage recognition.  ...  A particular challenge of automatic idiom usage recognition is that idioms, by their very nature, are idiosyncratic in their usages; therefore, most previous work on idiom usage recognition mainly adopted  ...  Literal Representation of Idiom We experiment with the following two representations of the literal sense of idiom: AWE, the average of the embeddings of words forming the idiom.  ...

The Other Side of the Coin: Unsupervised Disambiguation of Potentially Idiomatic Expressions by Contrasting Senses

Hessel Haagsma, Malvina Nissim, Johan Bos
2018 Linguistic Annotation Workshop  
This enables automatic interpretation of idiomatic expressions, which is important for applications like machine translation and sentiment analysis.  ...  In this work, we present an unsupervised approach for English that makes use of literalisations of idiom senses to improve disambiguation, which is based on the lexical cohesion graph-based method by Sporleder  ...  Idiom Literalisation Idiom literalisations are literal representations of the PIE's figurative sense, similar to dictionary definitions of an idiom's meaning.  ...

A polarity calculation approach for lexicon-based Turkish sentiment analysis

2019 Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences  
Sentiment analysis attempts to resolve the senses or emotions that a writer or speaker intends to send across to the people about an object or event.  ...  In recent years, researchers have conducted many successful sentiment analysis studies for the English language which consider many words and word groups that set emotion polarities arising from the English  ...  The datasets were examined at three levels; namely, word, word group, and idiom/proverb levels in order to reach the correct sense behind each tweet.  ...

2018 Proceedings of the 2018 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
This paper proposes an unsupervised learning method for recognizing the intended usages of idioms.  ...  We treat the possible usages as a latent variable in probabilistic models and train them in a linguistically motivated feature space.  ...  Let L denote the set of words in the literal usage representation for the target idiom.
