Building meaningful phrase representations is challenging because phrase meanings are not simply the sum of their constituent meanings. Lexical composition can shift the meanings of the constituent words and introduce implicit information. We tested a broad range of textual representations for their capacity to address these issues. We found that as expected, contextualized word representations perform better than static word embeddings, more so on detecting meaning shift than in recovering… CONTINUE READING
