Semantic similarity has attracted great concern for a long time in artificial intelligence, psychology and cognitive science. In recent years the measures based on WordNet have shown its talents and attracted great concern. Many measures have been proposed. The paper contains a review of the state of art measures, including path based measures, information based measures, feature based measures and hybrid measures. The features, performance, advantages, disadvantages and related issues of…

A Survey on Semantic Similarity Measure
TLDR
The paper contains a review of the state of art measures including path based measures, informationbased measures, feature based measures and hybrid measures and the features, performance, advantages, disadvantages and related issues of different measures are discussed.
New Modified Semantic Similarity Measure based on Information Content Approach
TLDR
The proposed modified semantic similarity measure of LIN measure focuses on solving the low similarity score between synonyms, as well as avoiding zero similarity score when the concept has no occurrence in corpus.
Measuring Word Semantic Relatedness Using WordNet-Based Approach
TLDR
Two different modified measures for computing the semantic relatedness between two words based on the path-based approach with the assumption that the explicit and implicit semantic relationships between synsets impose equally importance factors in the word relatedness measure are considered.
Computing Semantic Text Similarity Using Rich Features
TLDR
The experiments results indicated that the solution is more competitive when the domain-specific training data is available and the method still keeps good generalization ability on novel data.
Experimental Study of Semantic Similarity Measures on Arabic WordNet
TLDR
This paper investigates the ability of applying semantic similarity measures over AWN and their applicability on Arabic-related applications and shows that the Wup measure has the best performance in calculating the similarity of Arabic word pairs using AWN ontology against the other measures.
Domain Graph for Sentence Similarity
TLDR
This work constructs a domain graph of a synset which is all the hypernyms which belong to the domain of the synset, and takes an advantage of domain graphs to reflect semantic aspect of words.
SEMANTIC SIMILARITY BETWEEN SENTENCES
TLDR
This project evaluated and tested three different semantic similarity approaches like cosine similarity, path based approach (wu – palmer and shortest path based), and feature based approach and concluded that feature based measure generates better semantic score.
Towards a hybrid semantic similarity measure to set the conceptual relatedness in a hierarchy
TLDR
This paper presents a hybrid approach for measuring the semantic similarity, in an attempt to address a new issue that focuses on the sensitivity of the similarity measure between concepts in a hierarchy, and is expected to provide more consistent and accurate measures.
Concept Similarity Measure with Hierarchy Structure and Information
TLDR
This work proposes a new semantic similarity method combining hierarchy structure of ontology and information content of two concepts based on domain ontology, which highlights the semantic information of leaves in the ontology structure.
Knowledge-based sentence semantic similarity: algebraical properties
TLDR
This paper investigates three popular WordNet hierarchical semantic similarity measures, namely path-length, Wu and Palmer and Leacock and Chodorow, from both algebraical and intuitive properties, highlighting their inherent limitations and theoretical constraints.

Using Information Content to Evaluate Semantic Similarity on HowNet
TLDR
Experiments of this paper prove that the semantic similarity measured in this method is easy to calculate and more approach to human judgments.
Evaluating WordNet-based Measures of Lexical Semantic Relatedness
TLDR
An information-content-based measure proposed by Jiang and Conrath is found superior to those proposed by Hirst and St-Onge, Leacock and Chodorow, Lin, and Resnik, and why distributional similarity is not an adequate proxy for lexical semantic relatedness.
An Intrinsic Information Content Metric for Semantic Similarity in WordNet
TLDR
A wholly intrinsic measure of Information Content that relies on hierarchical structure alone is presented, which is consequently easier to calculate, yet when used as the basis of a similarity mechanism it yields judgments that correlate more closely with human assessments than other, extrinsic measures of IC that additionally employ corpus analysis.
A New Model of Information Content Based on Concept ’ s Topology for Measuring Semantic Similarity in WordNet
TLDR
This paper analyzes the state-of-art IC models, highlights important related issues, and presents a novel IC model based on concepts’ topology in WordNet, able to provide more accurate similarity evaluation and achieves significant performance than related works.
An Approach for Measuring Semantic Similarity between Words Using Multiple Information Sources
TLDR
This paper explores the determination of semantic similarity by a number of information sources, which consist of structural semantic information from a lexical taxonomy and information content from a corpus.
New model of semantic similarity measuring in wordnet
TLDR
The result shows the new model of measuring semantic similarity in the taxonomy of WordNet outperforms their homologues, and can make up the insufficient of other methods which only using one metric in their model.
Semantic Similarity Based on Corpus Statistics and Lexical Taxonomy
This paper presents a new approach for measuring semantic similarity/distance between words and concepts. It combines a lexical taxonomy structure with corpus statistical information so that the
A Tree-Based Similarity for Evaluating Concept Proximities in an Ontology
TLDR
This paper presents a theoretical study synthesis of some semantic measures based on an ontology restricted to subsumption links and introduces a new one: the Proportion of Shared Specificity, which takes into account the density of links in the graph between two concepts.
Semantic similarity methods in wordNet and their application to information retrieval on the web
TLDR
A novel information retrieval method is proposed that is capable of detecting similarities between documents containing semantically similar but not necessarily lexicographically similar terms.
Using Measures of Semantic Relatedness for Word Sense Disambiguation
TLDR
This paper generalizes the Adapted Lesk Algorithm to a method of word sense disambiguation based on semantic relatedness and finds that the gloss overlaps of AdaptedLesk and the semantic distance measure of Jiang and Conrath (1997) result in the highest accuracy.
