“Jason erinnert sich an nichts mehr – nicht einmal an seinen Namen. Leo und Piper scheinen zwar seine Freunde zu sein, aber auch das kann er nicht mit Sicherheit sagen. Allem Anschein nach gehören die drei tatsächlich zu den legendären sieben Halbgöttern, die den Olymp vor dem Untergang bewahren sollen. Auf dem Rücken eines mechanischen Drachen stürzen sie sich also ins Abenteuer. Und dann gilt es auch noch, einen seit längerem verschwundenen Halbgott zu finden, einen gewissen Percy Jackson…”

Broken World – Wie willst du leben?


Yma wusste schon immer, dass sie anders ist. Sie kann Mitleid empfinden. Und das ist hochgefährlich. Denn in Vahvin überleben nur die Starken und Gesunden. Den Schwachen zu helfen ist unter Höchststrafe verboten. Yma muss ihre Emotionen sorgsam unter Kontrolle halten. Doch dann verschwindet ihre beste Freundin. Auf der Suche nach ihr begegnet Yma dem geheimnisvollen Len. Was er ihr zeigt, stellt Yma vor eine harte Entscheidung: Wer will sie sein? Wie will sie leben? Und was wird sie riskieren für eine gerechtere Welt?”

Semantic Analysis: What Is It, How & Where To Works

semantics analysis

This study also highlights the future prospects of semantic analysis domain and finally the study is concluded with the result section where areas of improvement are highlighted and the recommendations are made for the future research. This study also highlights the weakness and the limitations of the study in the discussion (Sect. 4) and results (Sect. 5). Descriptively speaking, the main topics studied within lexical semantics involve either the internal semantic structure of words, or the semantic relations that occur within the vocabulary. Within the first set, major phenomena include polysemy (in contrast with vagueness), metonymy, metaphor, and prototypicality.

Apart from these vital elements, the semantic analysis also uses semiotics and collocations to understand and interpret language. Semiotics refers to what the word means and also the meaning it evokes or communicates. For example, ‘tea’ refers to a hot beverage, while it also evokes refreshment, alertness, and many other associations. On the semantics analysis other hand, collocations are two or more words that often go together. Semantic analysis helps fine-tune the search engine optimization (SEO) strategy by allowing companies to analyze and decode users’ searches. The approach helps deliver optimized and suitable content to the users, thereby boosting traffic and improving result relevance.

Because this clustered set is often built up round a central meaning, the term ‘radial set’ is often used for this kind of polysemic structure. Given a Saussurean distinction between paradigmatic and syntagmatic relations, lexical fields as originally conceived are based on paradigmatic relations of similarity. One extension of the field approach, then, consists of taking a syntagmatic point of view. Words may in fact have specific combinatorial features which it would be natural to include in a field analysis.

The Hummingbird algorithm was formed in 2013 and helps analyze user intentions as and when they use the google search engine. As a result of Hummingbird, results are shortlisted based on the ‘semantic’ relevance of the keywords. Moreover, it also plays a crucial role in offering SEO benefits to the company. It’s not just about understanding text; it’s about inferring intent, unraveling emotions, and enabling machines to interpret human communication with remarkable accuracy and depth. From optimizing data-driven strategies to refining automated processes, semantic analysis serves as the backbone, transforming how machines comprehend language and enhancing human-technology interactions.

Every type of communication — be it a tweet, LinkedIn post, or review in the comments section of a website — may contain potentially relevant and even valuable information that companies must capture and understand to stay ahead of their competition. Capturing the information is the easy part but understanding what is being said (and doing this at scale) is a whole different story. For Example, Tagging Twitter mentions by sentiment to get a sense of how customers feel about your product and can identify unhappy customers in real-time. Both polysemy and homonymy words have the same syntax or spelling but the main difference between them is that in polysemy, the meanings of the words are related but in homonymy, the meanings of the words are not related. Also, ‘smart search‘ is another functionality that one can integrate with ecommerce search tools.

Earlier, tools such as Google translate were suitable for word-to-word translations. However, with the advancement of natural language processing and deep learning, translator tools can determine a user’s intent and the meaning of input words, sentences, and context. All these parameters play a crucial role in accurate language translation. Semantics gives a deeper understanding of the text in sources such as a blog post, comments in a forum, documents, group chat applications, chatbots, etc.

The focus lies on the lexicological study of word meaning as a phenomenon in its own right, rather than on the interaction with neighboring disciplines. This implies that morphological semantics, that is the study of the meaning of morphemes and the way in which they combine into words, is not covered, as it is usually considered a separate field from lexical semantics proper. Similarly, the interface between lexical semantics and syntax will not be discussed extensively, as it is considered to be of primary interest for syntactic theorizing. There is no room to discuss the relationship between lexical semantics and lexicography as an applied discipline.

  • In 2006, Strube & Ponzetto demonstrated that Wikipedia could be used in semantic analytic calculations.[2] The usage of a large knowledge base like Wikipedia allows for an increase in both the accuracy and applicability of semantic analytics.
  • Semantic analysis allows for a deeper understanding of user preferences, enabling personalized recommendations in e-commerce, content curation, and more.
  • However, with the advancement of natural language processing and deep learning, translator tools can determine a user’s intent and the meaning of input words, sentences, and context.
  • Semantic analysis refers to a process of understanding natural language (text) by extracting insightful information such as context, emotions, and sentiments from unstructured data.

Second, linguistic tests involve syntactic rather than semantic intuitions. Specifically, they are based on acceptability judgments about sentences that contain two related occurrences of the item under consideration (one of which may be implicit). If the grammatical relationship between both occurrences requires their semantic identity, the resulting sentence may be an indication for the polysemy of the item.
