	abstract     = {In this work we investigate the hypothesis that enriching contextualized models using fine-tuning tasks can improve their
capacity to detect lexical semantic change (LSC). We include tasks  aimed to capture both low-level linguistic information like part-of-speech tagging, as well as higher level (semantic) information.
Through a series of analyses we demonstrate that certain combinations of fine-tuning tasks, like sentiment, syntactic information, and logical inference, bring large improvements to standard LSC models that are based only on standard language modeling. We test on the binary classification and ranking tasks of SemEval-2020 Task 1 and evaluate using both permutation tests and under transfer-learning scenarios.},
