  • Cross-lingual Hypernymy Detection involves determining if a word in one language ("fruit") is a hypernym of a word in another language ("pomme" i.e. apple in French). The ability to detect hypernymy cross-lingually can aid in solving cross-lingual versions of tasks such as textual entailment and event coreference. We propose BISPARSE-DEP, a family of unsupervised approaches for cross-lingual hypernymy detection, which learns sparse, bilingual word embeddings based on dependency contexts. We… CONTINUE READING
