This paper summarizes FBK-irst participation at the lexical substitution task of the Semeval competition. We submitted two different systems, both exploiting synonym lists extracted from dictionaries. For each word to be substituted, the systems rank the associated synonym list according to a similarity metric based on Latent Semantic Analysis and to the occurrences in the Web 1T 5-gram corpus, respectively. In particular, the latter system achieves the state-of-the-art performance, largely surpassing the baseline proposed by the organizers.

Abstract

This paper summarizes FBK-irst participation at the lexical substitution task of the Semeval competition. We submitted two different systems, both exploiting synonym lists extracted from dictionaries. For each word to be substituted, the systems rank the associated synonym list according to a similarity metric based on Latent Semantic Analysis and to the occurrences in the Web 1T 5-gram corpus, respectively. In particular, the latter system achieves the state-of-the-art performance, largely surpassing the baseline proposed by the organizers.
