SemEval-2012 Task 2: Measuring Degrees of Relational Similarity


Up to now, work on semantic relations has focused on relation classification: recognizing whether a given instance (a word pair such as virus:flu) belongs to a specific relation class (such as CAUSE:EFFECT). However, instances of a single relation class may still have significant variability in how characteristic they are of that class. We present a new SemEval task based on identifying the degree of prototypicality for instances within a given class. As a part of the task, we have assembled the first dataset of graded relational similarity ratings across 79 relation categories. Three teams submitted six systems, which were evaluated using two methods.
