Multi-Fusion Chinese WordNet (MCW) : Compound of Machine Learning and Manual Correction

by   Mingchen Li, et al.

Princeton WordNet (PWN) is a lexicon-semantic network based on cognitive linguistics, which promotes the development of natural language processing. Based on PWN, five Chinese wordnets have been developed to solve the problems of syntax and semantics. They include: Northeastern University Chinese WordNet (NEW), Sinica Bilingual Ontological WordNet (BOW), Southeast University Chinese WordNet (SEW), Taiwan University Chinese WordNet (CWN), Chinese Open WordNet (COW). By using them, we found that these word networks have low accuracy and coverage, and cannot completely portray the semantic network of PWN. So we decided to make a new Chinese wordnet called Multi-Fusion Chinese Wordnet (MCW) to make up those shortcomings. The key idea is to extend the SEW with the help of Oxford bilingual dictionary and Xinhua bilingual dictionary, and then correct it. More specifically, we used machine learning and manual adjustment in our corrections. Two standards were formulated to help our work. We conducted experiments on three tasks including relatedness calculation, word similarity and word sense disambiguation for the comparison of lemma's accuracy, at the same time, coverage also was compared. The results indicate that MCW can benefit from coverage and accuracy via our method. However, it still has room for improvement, especially with lemmas. In the future, we will continue to enhance the accuracy of MCW and expand the concepts in it.
