SWAT: Cross-Lingual Lexical Substitution Using Local Context Matching, Bilingual Dictionaries And Machine Translation
SemEval '10 Proceedings Of The 5th International Workshop On Semantic Evaluation
We present two systems that select the most appropriate Spanish substitutes for a marked word in an English test sentence. These systems were official entries to the SemEval-2010 Cross-Lingual Lexical Substitution task. The first system, Swat-E, finds Spanish substitutions by first finding English substitutions in the English sentence and then translating these substitutions into Spanish using an English-Spanish dictionary. The second system, Swat-S, translates each English sentence into Spanish and then finds the Spanish substitutions in the Spanish sentence. Both systems exceeded the baseline and all other participating systems by a wide margin using one of the two official scoring metrics.
