There are at least two kinds of similarity. Relational similarity is correspondence between relations, in contrast with attributional similarity, which is correspondence between attributes. When two words have a high degree of attributional similarity, we call them synonyms. When two pairs of words have a high degree of relational similarity, we say that their relations are analogous. For example, the word pair mason:stone is analogous to the pair carpenter:wood. This article introduces Latent… Expand

TLDR
A supervised ranking-based method to detect relationally similar word pairs to a given word pair using information retrieved from a Web search engine, which outperforms several previously proposed relational similarity measures on this benchmark dataset. Expand
Discovering Representative Space for Relational Similarity Measurement
TLDR
This work proposes a data-driven approach for discovering feature spaces for relational similarity measurement using a linear-SVM classifier to select features using training instances, where two pairs of words are labeled as analogous or non-analogous. Expand
Relational Similarity Measure: An Approach Combining Wikipedia and WordNet
Relational similarities between two pairs of words are the degrees of their semantic relations. Vector Space Model (VSM) is used to measure the relational similarity between two pairs of words,Expand
Measuring the Degree of Synonymy between Words Using Relational Similarity between Word Pairs as a Proxy
TLDR
The proposed method for measuring the degree of synonymy using relational similarity between word pairs as a proxy outperforms all existing Web-based similarity measures and achieves a statistically significant Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.867 on the Miller-Charles dataset. Expand
Measuring the similarity between implicit semantic relations using web search engines
TLDR
A method that uses Web search engines to efficiently compute the relational similarity between two pairs of words and a pattern extraction algorithm to extract a large number of lexical patterns that express numerous semantic relations is proposed. Expand
Improving relational similarity measurement using symmetries in proportional word analogies
TLDR
The proposed method to measure the relational similarity between the semantic relations that exist between the two words in each word pair achieves an SAT score of 49.2% on the benchmark dataset, which is comparable to the best results reported on this dataset. Expand
Measuring the similarity between implicit semantic relations from the web
TLDR
This work proposes a relational similarity measure, using a Web search engine, to compute the similarity between semantic relations implied by two pairs of words, and evaluates the proposed method in two tasks: classifying semantic relations between named entities, and solving word-analogy questions.

Measuring Similarity from Word Pair Matrices with Syntagmatic and Paradigmatic Associations
TLDR
This paper proposes a vector space model built from syntagmatic and paradigmatic associations to measure relational similarity between word pairs from the sentences contained in a small corpus and shows that the proposed method is effective when using a small Corpus. Expand
A Supervised Classification Approach for Measuring Relational Similarity between Word Pairs
TLDR
A supervised classification method to measure the similarity between semantic relations that exist between words in two word pairs, which outperforms several previously proposed relational similarity measures on this benchmark dataset. Expand
