Word Embeddings: What works, what doesn’t, and how to tell the difference for applied research
Word embeddings are becoming popular for political science research, yet we know little about their properties and performance. To help scholars seeking to use these techniques, we explore the effects of key parameter choices---including context window length, embedding vector dimensions and pre-trained vs locally fit variants---on the efficiency and quality of inferences possible with these models.
