Applying Multi-Sense Embeddings for German Verbs to Determine Semantic Relatedness and to Detect Non-Literal Language

Up to date, the majority of computational models still determines the semantic relatedness between words (or larger linguistic units) on the type level. In this paper, we compare and extend multi-sense embeddings, in order to model and utilise word senses on the token level... We focus on the challenging class of complex verbs, and evaluate the model variants on various semantic tasks: semantic classification; predicting compositionality; and detecting non-literal language usage. While there is no overall best model, all models significantly outperform a word2vec single-sense skip baseline, thus demonstrating the need to distinguish between word senses in a distributional semantic model. read more
