Learning Antonyms using the Paraphrase Database
October 19, 2016
Learning antonyms has widespread applications in NLP tasks. This study focuses on antonymy detection using the Paraphrase Database (PPDB). We present a new automatic method of generating antonym pairs using paraphrase pairs obtained using PPDB. We describe a method for discovering these word pairs using a subset of PPDB phrases that indicate an antonym relationship between the target word pairs.
