TRACK 1 – 1st Monolingual Word Sense Alignment Shared Task

Task Description

The task of monolingual word sense alignment is presented as a task of predicting the relationship between two senses in one of five categories: “exact”, “broader”, “narrower”, “related” or “none”. For each sense pair the following information will be provided

  • The lemma shared between the two entries
  • The part of speech of the entries*
  • The sense text (including definition) of the sense of the first entry
  • The sense text (including definition) of the sense of the second entry
  • (Training Data) The label of the relation (“exact”, “broader”, “narrower”, “related” or “none”)

For each pair of entry all mappings between senses will be provided, as such we expect the best systems to consider the mapping of an entry as a block.

Training data will be available for monolingual dictionaries in the following languages:

  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • English
  • Estonian
  • German
  • Hungarian*
  • Irish
  • Italian
  • Serbian
  • Slovenian
  • Russian

*For Hungarian part-of-speech information is not provided

Participants may participate in any or all of the above languages. The test data will consist of a group of entries with the label of the relation missing, participants should submit the result in the same form of the training data, that is the test data with the predicted label.
