Inclusive yet Selective: Supervised Distributional Hypernymy Detection (2014)
Stephen Roller, Katrin Erk, and Gemma Boleda
We test the Distributional Inclusion Hypothesis, which states that hypernyms tend to occur in a superset of contexts in which their hyponyms are found. We find that this hypothesis only holds when it is applied to relevant dimensions. We propose a robust supervised approach that achieves accuracies of .84 and .85 on two existing datasets and that can be interpreted as selecting the dimensions that are relevant for distributional inclusion.
