Abstract:   (843 Views)
Semantic relations between words like synsets are used in automatic ontology production which is a strong tool  in many NLP tasks. Synset extraction is usually dependent on other languages and resources using techniques such as mapping or translation. In our proposed method,  synsets are extracted merely from text and corpora. This frees us from the need for special resources including Word-Nets or dictionaries. The representation model for words of corpus is based on Vector Space model and the most similar words to each are extracted based on common features count (CFC) using a modified cosine similarity measure. Furthermore, a graph-based soft clustering approach is applied to create clusters of synonymous words.
To examine performance of the proposed method, Extracted synsets were compared to other Persian semantic resources. Results show an accuracy of 80.25%, which indicates improvement in comparison to the 69.5% accuracy of pure clustering by committee method.
