A Geometric Measure of Polysemy in Hindi Language

Abstract

A word referring to two or more different meanings is called polysemous. In this study, we introduce a geometric method to estimate the polysemy of words using the discrete Ollivier-Ricci curvature of a graph of synonyms in Hindi. We show that this approach can effectively measure the polysemy of words and is strongly correlated with theoretical interpretations of polysemy.
