Interpretation Of Lexical Relations: Hyponymy And Hypernymy, Homonymy, Antonymy, Synonymy
Axiomatic characterization of synonymy and antonymy. In Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Computational Linguistics, 1967.
Mostly these methods utilize words relationship (synonymy, hyperonymy, antonymy, hyponymy) to find the word in a list.
Here in both cases we are seeing the use of Negated Antonymy (4), in which the assertion of X and the negation of Y serve to reinforce the assertion of X.
Of paradigmatic relations, the words under discussion mostly display antonymy and hyponymy.
Word meaning has four aspects: denotation, or reference to something in the "real world" (15); connotation, or "often emotive" positive and negative associations (16); sense or semantic relations, such as synonymy, antonymy, hyponymy, and meronymy (17); and collocation, or the "likelihood that two words will co-occur" (18).
In addition, many researches point to hyperonymy, hyponymy, meronymy, synonymy and antonymy as the most important relationships [9][10].
Haastrup and Henriksen (2000) argued that lexical competence has three dimensions: (a) partial-precise, which they define as referring to diverse levels of comprehension of the same lexical item; (b) receptive-productive, which as the name suggests, relates to whether one's knowledge of a given word is receptive or productive; and (c) depth of knowledge, which is a word's paradigmatic (antonymy, synonymy, hyponymy, etc.) and syntagmatic relations (collocational restrictions).
The most common are Synonymy, Antonymy, Hypernymy, Meronymy etc., and we are interested in using the synonymy relation to find polarity of a word.
More specifically, semantic relations can be highlighted or obscured in texts through substitution, exclusion, synonymy, hyponymy, antonymy, etc.
Using certain stylistic features (alliteration, antonymy, adult slang), their program automatically constructed a decision tree for each pair of humorous data and nonhumorous data sets (that is, there were four different comparisons).
