For convenience of exposition, we shall divide paradigmatic sense relations into two broad classes, first those which express identity and inclusion between word meanings, and second, those expressing opposition and exclusion we shall begin with the former 821 hyponymy one of the most important structuring.
Besides hyponymy, a second important hierarchical sense relation is called meronymy meronymy refers to part-whole relationships that hold between words on different hierarchical levels (eg hand-arm) whereas hyponymy involves a relationship of inclusion between different classes, this is not the case with meronymy. We train a supervised classi- fier by assuming that a specific type of lexical- semantic relation between a pair of words would be signaled by a carefully de- signed set of relation-specific similarities between the words these similarities are computed by exploiting “sense represen- tations” (sense/concept embeddings) the.

In this paper, we show how an unsupervised sense induction method permits to capture two different types of semantic relations: first, semantic similarity relations between the translation equivalents of ambiguous words second, relations between their senses, which are automatically identified by means of. Words in a language can be described in terms of two types of relationships: paradigmatic and syntagmatic a paradigmatic relationship refers to the relationship between words that are the same parts of speech and which can be substituted for each other in the same position within a given sentence.

Lyons in his semantics (1977) according to lyons, the sense of a word is “its place in a system of relationships which it contracts with other words in the vocabulary”, so the whole lexical system of a language “is to be described in terms of the sense relations holding between the lexical items”(lyons,1977) he accepted the.
