SemEval 2018 - Hypernym Discovery

Training data released: https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/17119#participate  Evaluation deadline: 29 Jan 2018, 23:59 GMT The organizers of the SemEval-2018 – Task 9 are pleased to announce the shared task on Hypernym Discovery. Hypernymy, i.e. the capability for generalization, lies at the core of human cognition. It is not surprising, therefore, that identifying hypernymic relations (i.e., is-a relations) has been pursued in NLP for over two decades.
