Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics

Pivoting on bilingual parallel corpora is a popular approach for paraphrase acquisi- tion. Although such pivoted paraphrase collections have been successfully used to improve the performance of several dif- ferent NLP applications, it is still difficult to get an intrinsic estimate of the qual- ity and coverage of the paraphrases con- tained in these collections. We present ParaQuery, a tool that helps a user inter- actively explore and characterize a given pivoted paraphrase collection, analyze its utility for a particular domain, and com- pare it to other popular lexical similarity resources ? all within a single interface.
