I have seen word vectors, word representations and vector embedding in those papers (and in a few other places):
- https://www.cs.toronto.edu/~amnih/papers/wordreps.pdf : words embeddings
- http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.3781 : word representations
- http://ai.stanford.edu/~amaas/papers/wvSent_acl2011.pdf: word vectors
What's the difference between word vectors, word representations and vector embeddings?
I would say that a word vector is a kind of word representation, but how about vector embeddings?
