This paper presents methods for performing graph-based semantic classification using ker- nel functions defined on the WordNet lexi- cal hierarchy. These functions are evaluated on the SemEval Task 4 relation classification dataset and their performance is shown to be competitive with that of more complex sys- tems. A number of possible future develop- ments are suggested to illustrate the flexibility of the approach.
