- Abstract: In this paper, we investigate mapping the hyponymy relation of wordnet to feature vectors. We aim to model lexical knowledge in such a way that it can be used as input in generic machine-learning models, such as phrase entailment predictors. We propose two models. The first one leverages an existing mapping of words to feature vectors (fasttext), and attempts to classify such vectors as within or outside of each class. The second model is fully supervised, using solely wordnet as a ground truth. It maps each concept to an interval or a disjunction thereof. On the first model, we approach, but not quite attain state of the art performance. The second model can achieve near-perfect accuracy.
