An exploration of the semantic knowledge in vector models: polysemy, synonymy and idiomaticity
In this paper, we present the project An exploration of the semantic knowledge in vector models: polysemy, synonymy and idiomaticity, funded by the Xunta de Galicia within the program “Consolidación e estruturación de unidades de investigación competitivas e outras accións de fomento: Proxectos de Excelencia”, with a duration of 5 years (2021-2026). The main objective of the project is the analysis of the most recent language models regarding the representation of several aspects of lexical semantics: polysemy and homonymy, synonymy and idiomaticity. The languages in which we are working are Galician-Portuguese (in its Galician and Portuguese varieties, fundamentally), Spanish and English.
