Show Me Your Variance and I Tell You Who You Are - Deriving Compound Compositionality from Word Alignments

Fabienne Cap


Abstract
We use word alignment variance as an indicator for the non-compositionality of German and English noun compounds. Our work-in-progress results are on their own not competitive with state-of-the art approaches, but they show that alignment variance is correlated with compositionality and thus worth a closer look in the future.
