We evaluate semantic relatedness mea- sures on different German datasets show- ing that their performance depends on: (i) the definition of relatedness that was un- derlying the construction of the evalua- tion dataset, and (ii) the knowledge source used for computing semantic relatedness. We analyze how the underlying knowl- edge source influences the performance of a measure. Finally, we investigate the combinationofwordnetsandWikipediato improve the performance of semantic re- latedness measures.
