Analogies in Complex Verb Meaning Shifts: the Effect of Affect in Semantic Similarity Models

We present a computational model to detect and distinguish analogies in meaning shifts between German base and complex verbs. In contrast to corpus-based studies, a novel dataset demonstrates that {``}regular{''} shifts represent the smallest class... Classification experiments relying on a standard similarity model successfully distinguish between four types of shifts, with verb classes boosting the performance, and affective features for abstractness, emotion and sentiment representing the most salient indicators. read more
