Dear Graham,

The following paper that compares different measures of association might be of interest to you:

Wiechmann, Daniel (2008). On the Computation of Collostruction Strength: Testing measures of association as expressions of lexical bias. Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory, 4(2): 253–290.

Kind regards, Stella

> To: "corpora at uib.no" <corpora at uib.no>

> Hello to all,
> I'm writing with an undoubtedly naive question concerning measures of
> associativity.
> I'd like to be able to assess the constraints word 1 places on its
> surrounding context compared to the constraints word 2 places on its
> surrounding context. I've been doing this in terms of comparison of
> Log-likelihood measures for each, but I am told that Log-likelihood
> measures between nodes are not comparable in this way.
> Any pointers as to the best type of measurement would be much appreciated.
> Best regards,
> G. R.

> Shared Task, Collocated with WASSA 2018 (at EMNLP)

> *Introduction and Motivation*
>
> *
>
> Emotion is a concept that is challenging to describe. Yet, as human
> beings, we understand the emotional effect situations have or could have
> on us and other people.
>
> How can we transfer this knowledge to machines? Is it possible to learn
> the link between situations and the emotions they trigger in an
> automatic way?
>
>
> In the light of these questions, we propose the WASSA 2018 Shared Task
> on Implicit Emotions.
>
>
> The Shared Task on Implicit Emotion Recognition, organized as part of
> WASSA 2018 <http://www.wassa2018.com/>at EMNLP 2018
> <http://implicitemotions.wassa2018.com/EMNLP%202018>aims at developing
> models which can recognize the emotion label for a situation described
> in a text, belonging to the following emotion categories: Anger, Fear,
> Sadness, Joy, Disgust, Surprise without having access to an explicit
> mention of an emotion word.
>
>
> Task Description
>
>
> You will be given a tweet from which a certain emotion word is removed.
> That word is one of the following: "sad", "happy", "disgusted",
> "surprised", "angry", "afraid" or a synonym of one of them. Your task is
> to predict the emotion the excluded word expresses: Sadness, Joy,
> Disgust, Surprise, Anger, or Fear.
>
>
> With this formulation of the task, we provide data instances which are
> likely to express an emotion. However, the emotion needs to be inferred
> from the causal description, which is typically more implicit than an
> emotion word. We therefore presume that successful systems will take
> into account world knowledge in a structured or statistical manner.
>
>
>
> Examples are:
>
>
>
> "It's [#TARGETWORD#] when you feel like you are invisible to others."
>
> "My step mom got so [#TARGETWORD#] when she came home from work and saw
> that the boys didn't come to Austin with me."
>
> "We are so #[#TARGETWORD#] that people must think we are on good drugsor
> just really good actors."
