Be appropriate and funny: Automatic entity morph encoding

View publication


Internet users are keen on creating different kinds of morphs to avoid censorship, express strong sentiment or humor. For example, in Chinese social media, users often use the entity morph " (Instant Noodles)" to refer to " (Zhou Yongkang)" because it shares one character "(Kang)" with the well-known brand of instant noodles "(Master Kang)". We developed a wide variety of novel approaches to automatically encode proper and interesting morphs, which can effectively pass decoding tests © 2014 Association for Computational Linguistics.
