Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

This corpus study addresses the question of the nature and the structure of antonymy and synonymy in language use, following automatic methods to identify their behavioral patterns in texts. We examine the conceptual closeness/distance of synonyms and antonyms through the lens of their DOMAIN instantiations.
