280validForms: hating#v -> hate#v hat#v
- May 24, 2005Hi, Jason and everybody,
I wonder if the following is the intended behaviour:
query with validForms(hating#v)
Now, there happens to be a verb "hat" (put on or wear a hat); however,
hating cannot be its -ing form - should be hatting, as in patting,
This creates a problem for me, since I am defaulting to the last
element for the base form. This idea derives from the noun pattern:
years#n -> years#n year#n
where the first member is the actual full form, and not the best guess
for the base form.
WordNet online produces the page for "hate" when queried on "hating".
It could be that the "hate" version just happens to be first in line...
Similar problems surface up for:
dotes#v -> dote#v dot#v
tapes#v -> tape#v tap#v
dines#v -> dine#v din#v
Any ideas as to how to go handle this?
