Title Benchmarking Noun Compound Interpretation
Venue International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing
Session Main Conference
Year 2008

In this paper we provide benchmark results for two classes of methods used in inter- preting noun compounds (NCs): semantic similarity-based methods and their hybrids. We evaluate the methods using 7-way and binary class data from the nominal pair in- terpretation task of SEMEVAL-2007.1 We summarize and analyse our results, with the intention of providing a framework for benchmarking future research in this area.
