Abstract
This paper describes our system, entitled Idiom Savant, for the 7th Task of the Semeval 2017 workshop, “Detection and interpretation of English Puns”. Our system consists of two probabilistic models for each type of puns using Google n-gram and Word2Vec. Our system achieved f-score of calculating, 0.663, and 0.07 in homographic puns and 0.8439, 0.6631, and 0.0806 in heterographic puns in task 1, task 2, and task 3 respectively.
