A new metaphor of two-dimensional text for data-driven semantic modeling of natural language is proposed, which provides an entirely new angle on the representation of text: not only syntagmatic relations are annotated in the text, but also paradigmatic relations are made explicit by generating lexical expansions. We operationalize dis-tributional(More)
In this paper, we propose an unsupervised method to identify noun sense changes based on rigorous analysis of time-varying text data available in the form of millions of digitized books. We construct distribu-tional thesauri based networks from data at different time points and cluster each of them separately to obtain word-centric sense clusters(More)
We introduce a new highly scalable approach for computing Distributional Thesauri (DTs). By employing pruning techniques and a distributed framework, we make the computation for very large corpora feasible on comparably small computational resources. We demonstrate this by releasing a DT for the whole vocabulary of Google Books syntactic n-grams. Evaluating(More)
We present a new unsupervised mechanism , which ranks word n-grams according to their multiwordness. It heavily relies on a new uniqueness measure that computes, based on a distributional thesaurus , how often an n-gram could be replaced in context by a single-worded term. In addition with a downweighting mechanism for incomplete terms this forms a new(More)
We introduce an interactive visualization component for the JoBimText project. JoBim-Text is an open source platform for large-scale distributional semantics based on graph representations. First we describe the underlying technology for computing a distributional thesaurus on words using bipartite graphs of words and context features, and contextualiz-ing(More)
We present a flexible open-source framework that performs dependency parsing with collapsed dependencies. The parser framework features a rule-based annotator that directly works on the output of a dependency parser. Thus, it can introduce dependency collapsing and propagation (de Marneffe et al., 2006) to parsers that lack this functionality. Collapsing is(More)
