Verb Construction As A Feature Of Genre Classification

6 pagesPublished: March 18, 2019


In our research we studied the dependency structure of the text genre (love stories, detective stories, science fiction and fantasy). The novel characteristics (such syntactic attributes as verb constructions and construction of a specific cumulative threshold) which can be additional machine learning parameters were identified. We conducted experiment with novel features and showed that these characteristics can be useful for closely related genre recognition.

Keyphrases: machine learning, Universal Dependencies, verb construction
