Lexical Semantics
Lexical semantics concerns the representation and use of word meanings in natural language processing. Our work in the area has focused on learning word meanings for use in semantic parsing and, more recently, improved distributional (vector space) models of word meaning. Lexical semantics is part of our research on natural language learning.
