Sample text

Here, hypothesis h1 is a valid entailment, and should be judged to have high probability by the system. Hypothesis h2 should have lower probability since it uses the wrong sense of leave and h3 should be low probability because the logical operator not has reversed the meaning of the premise statement. While the most prominent forum using textual entailment is the Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE) challenge (Dagan et al. 2005), the RTE datasets do not test the phenomena in which we are interested.

Their approach identifies an “implication signature” for every implicative or factive verb. This signature specifies the truth conditions for the verb’s nested proposition, depending on whether the verb occurs in a positive or negative environment. Following MacCartney and Manning (2009), we write implication signatures as “x/y” where x represents the entailment to which the speaker commits in a positive environment and y represents entailment in a negative environment. Both x and y have three possible values: “+” for positive entailment, meaning the nested proposition is entailed, “-” for negative entailment, meaning the negation of the proposition is entailed, and “o” for “null” entailment, meaning that neither the proposition nor its negation is entailed.
