Abstract

In this paper, we describe our two SemEval-2007 entries. Our first entry, for Task 5: Multilingual Chinese-English Lexical Sample Task, is a supervised system that decides the most appropriate English translation of a Chinese target word. This system uses a combination of Naïve Bayes, nearest neighbor cosine, decision lists, and latent semantic analysis. Our second entry, for Task 14: Affective Text, is a supervised system that annotates headlines using a predefined list of emotions. This system uses synonym expansion and matches lemmatized unigrams in the test headlines against a corpus of hand-annotated headlines.
