Example-Based Metonymy Recognition for Proper Nouns

  title={Example-Based Metonymy Recognition for Proper Nouns},
  author={Yves Peirsman},
Metonymy recognition is generally approached with complex algorithms that rely heavily on the manual annotation of training and test data. This paper will relieve this complexity in two ways. First, it will show that the results of the current learning algorithms can be replicated by the ‘lazy’ algorithm of Memory-Based Learning. This approach simply stores all training instances to its memory and classifies a test instance by comparing it to all training examples. Second, this paper will argue… CONTINUE READING
