“Grammatical error correction (GEC) aims at correcting texts with different types of grammatical errors into natural and correct forms. Due to the difference of error type distribution and error density, current grammatical error correction systems may over-correct writings and produce a low precision. To address this issue, in this paper, we propose a dynamic negative example construction method for grammatical error correction using contrastive learning. The proposed method can construct sufficient negative examples with diverse grammatical errors, and can be dynamically used during model training. The constructed negative examples are beneficial for the GEC model to correct sentences precisely and suppress the model from over-correction. Experimental results show that our proposed method enhances model precision, proving the effectiveness of our method.”
