Ablated Resource Team Run Δ Accuracy % - 2way Δ Accuracy % - 3way Resource Usage Description
Acronym guide Siel_093.3way 0 0 The acronyms are expanded using the acronym database, so the acronyms are also matched with the expanded acronyms, and entailment is predicted accordingly
Acronym guide +
UAIC_Acronym_rules
UAIC20091.3way 0.17 0.16 We start from acronym-guide, but additional we use a rule that consider for expressions like Xaaaa Ybbbb Zcccc the acronym XYZ, regardless of length of text with this form.
DIRT BIU1.2way 1.33 Inference rules
DIRT Boeing3.3way -1.17 0 Verb paraphrases
DIRT UAIC20091.3way 0.17 0.33 We transform text and hypothesis with MINIPAR into dependency trees: use of DIRT relations to map verbs in T with verbs in H

VensesTeam2.2way 2.83 Semantic fields are used as semantic similarity matching, in all cases of non identical lemmas
MontyLingua Tool Siel_093.3way 0 0 For the VerbOcean, the verbs have to be in the base form. We used the "MontyLingua" tool to convert the verbs into their base form
NEGATION_rules by UAIC UAIC20091.3way 0 -1.34 Negation rules check in the dependency trees on verbs descending branches to see if some categories of words that change the meaning are found.
NER (RASP Parser nertag) JU_CSE_TAC1.2way 0 Named Entity match: measure based on the number of Nes in the hypothesis that match in the corresponding text. For named entity recognition, the RASP Parser (Briscoe et al., 2006) nertag component has been used.
NER UI_ccg1.2way 4.83 Named Entity recognition/comparison
PropBank cswhu1.3way 2 3.17 syntactic and semantic parsing
Stanford NER QUANTA1.2way 0.67 We use Named Entity similarity as a feature
Stopword list FBKirst1.2way 1.5 A list of the 572 most frequent English words has been collected in order to prevent assigning high costs to the deletion/insertion of terms that are unlikely to bring relevant information to detect entailment,and to avoid substituting these terms with any content word.
