How Well Can We Predict Hypernyms from Word Embeddings? A Dataset-Centric Analysis

EACL 2017  ·  Ivan Sanchez, Sebastian Riedel ·

One key property of word embeddings currently under study is their capacity to encode hypernymy. Previous works have used supervised models to recover hypernymy structures from embeddings... However, the overall results do not clearly show how well we can recover such structures. We conduct the first dataset-centric analysis that shows how only the Baroni dataset provides consistent results. We empirically show that a possible reason for its good performance is its alignment to dimensions specific of hypernymy: generality and similarity read more
