Abstract:

To add to WordNet's contents, and specifically to aid automatic reasoning with WordNet, we classify and label the current relations among derivationally and semantically related noun-verb pairs. Manual inspection of thousands of pairs shows that the form-meaning mappings of affixes are not in a one-to-one relation and far less regularity than expected. We determine a set of semantic relations found across a number of morphologically defined noun-verb pair classes.
