Variants of Vector Space Reductions for Predicting the Compositionality of English Noun Compounds

Predicting the degree of compositionality of noun compounds such as {``}snowball{''} and {``}butterfly{''} is a crucial ingredient for lexicography and Natural Language Processing applications, to know whether the compound should be treated as a whole, or through its constituents, and what it means. Computational approaches for an automatic prediction typically represent and compare compounds and their constituents within a vector space and use distributional similarity as a proxy to predict the semantic relatedness between the compounds and their constituents as the compound{'}s degree of compositionality...
