Synonym Extraction Task
(Redirected from Synonym Recognition Task)Jump to navigation Jump to search
- AKA: Synonym Recognition, Synset Identification.
- Output: A set of Synonym Sets.
- It can range from (typically) being a Synonymous Nouns Extraction Task to being a Synonymous Verbs Extraction Task, to being a Synonymous Adjectives Extraction Task, to being a Synonymous Adverbs Extraction Task, depending on the part-of-speech role.
- It can range from being an Open Synonym Extraction Task to being a Closed Synonym Extraction Task (with a lexicon).
- It can range from being an Heuristic Synonym Extraction Task to being a Data-Driven Synonym Extraction Task, such as Unsupervised Synonym Extraction to being a Supervised Synonym Extraction.
- It can range from being a Domain-Specific Synonym Extraction Task to being a Synonymous Common Usage Word Extraction Task.
- It can be solved by a Synonym Extraction System (that implements a Synonym Extraction Algorithm)

- ABSTRACT: Automatic determination of synonyms and/or semantically related words has various applications in Natural Language Processing. Two mainstream paradigms to date, lexicon-based and distributional approaches, both exhibit pros and cons with regard to coverage, complexity, and quality. In this paper, we propose three novel methods — two rule-based methods and one machine learning approach — to identify synonyms from definition texts in a machine-readable dictionary. Extracted synonyms are evaluated in two extrinsic experiments and one intrinsic experiment. Evaluation results show that our pattern-based approach achieves best performance in one of the experiments and satisfactory results in the other, comparable to corpus-based state-of-the-art results.

- QUOTE: The system identifies human gene synonyms from online databases to generate an extensive synonym lexicon. The lexicon is then compared to a list of candidate gene mentions using various string transformations that can be applied and chained in a flexible order, followed by exact string matching or approximate string matching.
