Pattern-Based Synonym and Antonym Extraction

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


Many research studies adopt manually selected patterns for semantic relation extraction. However, manually identifying and discovering patterns is time consuming and it is difficult to discover all potential candidates. Instead, we propose an automatic pattern construction approach to extract verb synonyms and antonyms from English newspapers. Instead of relying on a single pattern, we combine results indicated by multiple patterns to maximize the recall.
