VarIDE at PARSEME Shared Task 2018: Are Variants Really as Alike as Two Peas in a Pod?

Caroline Pasquer, Carlos Ramisch, Agata Savary, Jean-Yves Antoine


Abstract
We describe the VarIDE system (standing for Variant IDEntification) which participated in the edition 1.1 of the PARSEME shared task on automatic identification of verbal multiword expressions (VMWEs). Our system focuses on the task of VMWE variant identification by using morphosyntactic information in the training data to predict if candidates extracted from the test corpus could be idiomatic, thanks to a naive Bayes classifier. We report results for 19 languages.
