Entity synonym discovery (ESD) from text corpus is an essential problem in many entity-leveraging applications. This paper aims to address three limitations that widely exist in the current ESD solutions: 1) the lack of effective utilization for synonym set information; 2) the feature extraction of entities from restricted receptive fields; and 3) the incapacity to capture higher-order contextual information. We propose a novel set-aware ESD model that enables a flexible receptive field for ESD by using entity synonym set information and constructing a two-level network. Extensive experimental results on public datasets show that our model consistently outperforms the state-of-the-art with significant improvement.
