The automatic interpretation of noun-noun compounds is an important subproblem within many natural language processing applications and is an area of increasing interest. The problem is difficult, with dis- agreement regarding the number and na- ture of the relations, low inter-annotator agreement, and limited annotated data. In this paper, we present a novel taxonomy of relations that integrates previous rela- tions, the largest publicly-available anno- tated dataset, and a supervised classifica- tion method for automatic noun compound interpretation.
