Semantic annotation to characterize contextual variation in terminological noun compounds: a pilot study

Melania Cabezas-García, Antonio San Martín


Abstract
Noun compounds (NCs) are semantically complex and not fully compositional, as is often assumed. This paper presents a pilot study regarding the semantic annotation of environmental NCs with a view to accessing their semantics and exploring their domain-based contextual variation. Our results showed that the semantic annotation of NCs afforded important insights into how context impacts their conceptualization.
