Animacy Detection in Stories

Authors: Folgert Karsdorp, Marten van der Meulen, Theo Meder, and Antal van den Bosch

Published in: OASIcs, Volume 45, 6th Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN 2015)

This paper presents a linguistically uninformed computational model for animacy classification. The model makes use of word n-grams in combination with lower dimensional word embedding representations that are learned from a web-scale corpus. We compare the model to a number of linguistically informed models that use features such as dependency tags and show competitive results. We apply our animacy classifier to a large collection of Dutch folktales to obtain a list of all characters in the stories. We then draw a semantic map of all automatically extracted characters which provides a unique entrance point to the collection.
