DistRoot: From distributions to roots - Towards a linguistically grounded theory of the conceptual underpinnings of verb meaning
November 2018- April 2020
- Short description
The project investigates whether there is a systematic, theoretically informed and computationally supported way to perform the drastic dimension reduction that is required to convert a high-dimensional distributional semantic representation of a verb into a low-dimensional conceptual structure that can be understood as a theoretically reasonable and sensible representation of the conceptual meaning of that verb.
