Dataset Card for PAWS-X: A Cross-lingual Adversarial Dataset for Paraphrase Identification

Dataset Summary

This dataset contains 23,659 human translated PAWS evaluation pairs and 296,406 machine translated training pairs in six typologically distinct languages: French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. All translated pairs are sourced from examples in PAWS-Wiki.

For further details, see the accompanying paper: PAWS-X: A Cross-lingual Adversarial Dataset for Paraphrase Identification

Supported Tasks and Leaderboards

It has been majorly used for paraphrase identification for English and other 6 languages namely French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean

Languages

The dataset is in English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean

Dataset Structure

Data Instances

label       :   0

Data Fields

All files are in tsv format with four columns:

Column Name Data
id An ID that matches the ID of the source pair in PAWS-Wiki
sentence1 The first sentence
sentence2 The second sentence
label Label for each pair

The source text of each translation can be retrieved by looking up the ID in the corresponding file in PAWS-Wiki.

Data Splits

The numbers of examples for each of the seven languages are shown below:

Language Train Dev Test
en 49,401 2,000 2,000
fr 49,401 2,000 2,000
es 49,401 2,000 2,000

ja 49,401 2,000 2,000
ko 49,401 2,000 2,000

Caveat: please note that the dev and test sets of PAWS-X are both sourced from the dev set of PAWS-Wiki. As a consequence, the same sentence 1 may appear in both the dev and test sets. Nevertheless our data split guarantees that there is no overlap on sentence pairs (sentence 1 + sentence 2) between dev and test.

Dataset Creation

Curation Rationale

Most existing work on adversarial data generation focuses on English. For example, PAWS (Paraphrase Adversaries from Word Scrambling) (Zhang et al., 2019) consists of challenging English paraphrase identification pairs from Wikipedia and Quora. They remedy this gap with PAWS-X, a new dataset of 23,659 human translated PAWS evaluation pairs in six typologically distinct languages: French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. They provide baseline numbers for three models with different capacity to capture non-local context and sentence structure, and using different multilingual training and evaluation regimes. Multilingual BERT (Devlin et al., 2019) fine-tuned on PAWS English plus machine-translated data performs the best, with a range of 83.1-90.8 accuracy across the non-English languages and an average accuracy gain of 23% over the next best model. PAWS-X shows the effectiveness of deep, multilingual pre-training while also leaving considerable headroom as a new challenge to drive multilingual research that better captures structure and contextual information.
