Abstract

Previous research has shown that the meaning of many noun-noun compounds N1 N2 can be approximated reasonably well by paraphrasing clauses of the form 'N2 that... N1', where '...' stands for a verb with or without a preposition. For example, malaria mosquito is a 'mosquito that carries malaria'. Evaluating the quality of such paraphrases is the theme of Task 9 at SemEval-2010. This paper describes some background, the task definition, the process of data collection and the task results. We also venture a few general conclusions before the participating teams present their systems at the SemEval-2010 workshop. There were 5 teams who submitted 7 systems.
