CRIM at SemEval-2018 Task 9: A Hybrid Approach to Hypernym Discovery
Gabriel Bernier-Colborne | Caroline Barrière
Proceedings of The 12th International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation

This report describes the system developed by the CRIM team for the hypernym discovery task at SemEval 2018. This system exploits a combination of supervised projection learning and unsupervised pattern-based hypernym discovery. It was ranked first on the 3 sub-tasks for which we submitted results.

Contextual term equivalent search using domain-driven disambiguation
Caroline Barrière | Pierre André Ménard | Daphnée Azoulay
Proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Computational Terminology (Computerm2016)

This article presents a domain-driven algorithm for the task of term sense disambiguation (TSD). TSD aims at automatically choosing which term record from a term bank best represents the meaning of a term occurring in a particular context. In a translation environment, finding the contextually appropriate term record is necessary to access the proper equivalent to be used in the target language text. The term bank TERMIUM Plus, recently published as an open access repository, is chosen as a domain-rich resource for testing our TSD algorithm, using English and French as source and target languages. We devise an experiment using over 1300 English terms found in scientific articles, and show that our domain-driven TSD algorithm is able to bring the best term record, and therefore the best French equivalent, at the average rank of 1.69 compared to a baseline random rank of 3.51.

Linked Open Data and Web Corpus Data for noun compound bracketing
Pierre André Ménard | Caroline Barrière
Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'14)

This research provides a comparison of a linked open data resource (DBpedia) and web corpus data resources (Google Web Ngrams and Google Books Ngrams) for noun compound bracketing. Large corpus statistical analysis has often been used for noun compound bracketing, and our goal is to introduce a linked open data (LOD) resource for such task. We show its particularities and its performance on the task. Results obtained on resources tested individually are promising, showing a potential for DBpedia to be included in future hybrid systems.
