  "note": "The authors would like to thank Diana McCarthy for her valuable input to the genesis of this task. DS was supported by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the CRETA center funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) during the conduct of this study. This task has been funded in part by the project 'Towards Computational Lexical Semantic Change Detection' supported  by the Swedish Research Council (2019\u20132022; dnr 2018-01184), and Nationella spr\u00e5kbanken (the Swedish National Language Bank) -- jointly funded  by  (2018--2024; dnr 2017-00626) and its 10 partner institutions, to NT. The Swedish list of potential change words were provided by the research group at the Department of Swedish, University of Gothenburg that work with the Contemporary Dictionary of the Swedish Academy. This work was supported by The Alan Turing Institute under the EPSRC grant EP/N510129/1, to BMcG. Additional thanks go to the annotators of our datasets, and an anonymous donor.",
