This paper presents the work of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyUCOMP) team which has participated in the Semantic Textual Similarity task of SemEval-2012. The PolyUCOMP system combines semantic vectors with skip bigrams to determine sentence similarity. The semantic vector is used to compute similarities between sentence pairs using the lexical database WordNet and the Wikipedia corpus. The use of skip bigram is to introduce the order of words in measuring sentence similarity.
