Actually, these are 7 types of language patterns that are difficult to analyse with automated algorithms:
- "A land of milk and honey" becomes "A land of Milken Honey" (algorithm trained on Wall Street Journal from the 1980's where Michael Milken was mentioned much more than milk)
- "She threw up her dinner" vs. "She threw up her hands"
- "I ate a tomato with salt" vs. "I ate a tomato with my mother" or "I ate a tomato with a fork"
- Words ending with -ing, e.g. "They were entertaining people"
- "He washed and dried the dishes", vs. "He drank and smoked cigars" (in the latter case he did not drunk cigars)
- "The lamb was ready to eat" vs. "Was the lamb hungry and wanting some grass?"
- Words with multiple meaning (e.g. a bay can be a color, type of window or body of water)
