JeSemE (Jena Semantic Explorer) allows you to explore the semantic development of words over time based on distributional semantics. JeSemE is described in detail in our ACL 2017 paper "Exploring Diachronic Lexical Semantics with JESEME" and our COLING 2018 paper "JeSemE: A Website for Exploring Diachronic Changes in Word Meaning and Emotion"
Modified version of Omar Levy's hyperwords
- Use maven to build an executable JAR (with dependencies) by executing mvn package in the folder "website"
- Configuration is done via config.yaml, you must set correct paths for your system!
- Requires a Postgres Server, enter details in config
- Mapping between words and lemmata (German only, fit for historic texts) via normalized.csv (mappingPath in config)
- Files with trained models and derived emotions can be found online on JeSemE's help page
- Use the JAR to execute the commands "initialize" first (creates necessary tables), then "import" (takes some hours & approx 30 GB), and finally start JeSemE via "server"
