Title:Inferring Textual Entailment with a Probabilistically Sound Calculus
Authors: Stefan Harmeling
Date: 2007
Publication Title:Journal of Natural Language Engineering
Publication Type:Journal Article Publication Status:Submitted
We introduce a system for textual entailment that is based on a probabilistic model of entailment. The model is defined using a calculus of transformations on dependency trees, which is characterized by the fact that derivations in that calculus preserve the truth only with a certain probability. The calculus is successfully evaluated on the data sets of the PASCAL challenge on Recognizing Textual Entailment.
