Title:Modelling the similarity of discourse connectives
Authors: Ben Hutchinson
Date:Jul 2005
Publication Title:Proceedings of CogSci 2005
Publication Type:Conference Paper
Discourse connectives enable discourse coherence relations to be studies empirically. This paper presents two experiments on the semantic similarity of discourse connectives. Subjects are found to agree significantly on the similarity of pairs of connectives, and their similarity judgements are related to the ability of the connectives to be used to paraphrase each other. Subjects' similarity judgements are also found to correlate positively with the distributional similarity of the connectives.
