  • Consistency of a model — that is, the invariance of its behavior under meaning-preserving alternations in its input — is a highly desirable property in natural language processing. In this paper we study the question: Are Pretrained Language Models (PLMs) consistent with respect to factual knowledge? To this end, we create PARAREL , a high-quality resource of cloze-style query English paraphrases. It contains a total of 328 paraphrases for thirty-eight relations. Using PARAREL , we show that… CONTINUE READING
