Bordea, Georgeta; Lefever, Els; Buitelaar, Paul (2016) SemEval-2016 Task 13: Taxonomy Extraction Evaluation (TExEval-2) Proceedings of the 10th International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation (SemEval-2016) San Diego, California,
This paper describes the second edition of the shared task on Taxonomy Extraction Evaluation organised as part of SemEval 2016. This task aims to extract hypernym-hyponym relations between a given list of domain-specific terms and then to construct a domain taxonomy based on them. TExEval-2 introduced a multilingual setting for this task, covering four different languages including English, Dutch, Italian and French from domains as diverse as environment, food and science. A total of 62 runs submitted by 5 different teams were evaluated using structural measures, by comparison with gold standard taxonomies and by manual quality assessment of novel relations.
