[R] Is there any way to incorporate dictionary definitions as features into an NLP system?
I’m currently trying to get the dictionary definitions of words as features. However, I’m having trouble finding a source that actually has such a source.
I understand that there are many techniques that allow us to leverage the information that words carry (e.g. WordNet, Word2Vec, GloVe, ELMo, etc.) but these aren’t exactly the “dictionary definition” that I’m looking for. For example, WordNet takes advantage of the hierarchical relationship among words, and Word2Vec and GloVe tell us how similar two words are. Not exactly a “dictionary definition” in my opinion.
Does anybody know if there exists any source out there that provides such features? Thanks in advance.
