  title={A Latent Dirichlet Allocation Method for Selectional Preferences},

Computation of selectional preferences, the admissible argument values for a relation, is a well studied NLP task with wide applicability. We present LDA-SP, the first LDA-based approach to computing selectional preferences. By simultaneously inferring latent topics and topic distributions over relations, LDA-SP combines the benefits of previous approaches: it is competitive with the non-class-based methods in predictive power, and also produces human-interpretable classes describing each… CONTINUE READING
