How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Nominal compounds such as red wine and nut case display a continuum of compositionality, with varying contributions from the components of the compound to its semantics. This article proposes a framework for compound compositionality prediction using distributional semantic models, evaluating to what extent they capture idiomaticity compared to hum...
Thesis
Natural language processing systems often rely on the idea that language is compositional, that is, the meaning of a linguistic entity can be inferred from the meaning of its parts. This expectation fails in the case of multiword expressions (MWEs). For example, a person who is a sitting duck is neither a duck nor necessarily sitting. Modern comput...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Distributional semantic models (DSMs) are often evaluated on artificial similarity datasets containing single words or fully compositional phrases. We present a large-scale multilingual evaluation of DSMs for predicting the degree of semantic compositionality of nominal compounds on 4 datasets for English and French. We build a total of 816 DSMs an...
Conference Paper

We introduce a new multilingual resource containing judgments about nominal compound compositionality in English, French and Portuguese. It covers 3 × 180 noun-noun and adjective-noun compounds for which we provide numerical compositionality scores for the head word, for the modifier and for the compound as a whole, along with possible paraphrases....
Conference Paper
Multiword Expressions (MWEs) display some kind of linguistic and statistical markedness that may influence the effectiveness of techniques that automatically identify them in texts. While parsing-based techniques for MWE identification are considered to be better at handling long-distance dependencies, passivization and internal modification, stati...
Conference Paper

This paper presents our approach towards the SemEval-2016 Task 10 - Detecting Minimal Semantic Units and their Meanings. Systems are expected to provide a representation of lexical semantics by (1) segmenting tokens into words and multiword units and (2) providing a supersense tag for segments that function as nouns or verbs. Our pipeline rule-base...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper analyzes datasets with numerical scores that quantify the semantic compositionality of MWEs. We present the results of our analysis of crowdsourced compositionality judgments for noun compounds in three languages. Our goals are to look at the characteristics of the annotations in different languages; to examine intrinsic quality measures...
