We introduce the challenge of detecting semantically compatible words, that is, words that can potentially refer to the same thing (cat and hindrance are compatible, cat and dog are not), arguing for its central role in many semantic tasks. We present a publicly available data-set of human compatibility ratings, and a neural-network model that takes distributional embeddings of words as input and learns alternative embeddings that perform the compatibility detection task quite well.
