Augmenting WordNet-based Inference with Argument Mapping
Idan Szpektor and Ido Dagan

WordNet is a useful resource for lexical inference in
applications. Inference over predicates, however, often requires a
change in argument positions, which is not specified in WordNet.
We propose a novel framework for augmenting WordNet-based
inferences over predicates with corresponding argument mappings.
We further present a concrete implementation of this framework,
which yields substantial improvement to WordNet-based inference.
