CLEF 2023 JOKER Track:
Automatic Wordplay Analysis
Tasks, evaluation setup, and metrics
In the edition, we propose three shared tasks:
- Task 1: Pun detection in English, French, and Spanish. We will use the corpora which were a side result of JOKER-2022  and the augmented data of SemEval-2017  as well as standard evaluation metrics for binary classification (precision, recall, accuracy)
- Task 2: Pun location and interpretation in English, French, and Spanish. We will use the extended corpus of JOKER-2022 Task 1. We will evaluate location based on the accuracy and the interpretation based on paronyms and synonyms.
- Task 3: Pun translation from English to French and to Spanish. We will use the extended version of the corpus of JOKER-2022 Task 3 and we will continue to evaluate the generated translation manually.
- Open Task: in English, French, and Spanish. In addition, we encourage the use of our data for tasks related to computational wordplay and humour. These could take the form of experiment reports on humour perception, evaluation, wordplay generation, or user studies. Register for any of the aforementioned shared task if you are interested in this open task.
