Multiword expressions : linguistic precision and reusability
This paper discusses the approach to multiword expressions being adopted in the LinGO English Resource Grammar ...
Extraction of attribute concepts from Japanese adjectives
We describe various syntactic and semantic conditions for finding abstractnouns which refer to concepts of adjectives from a text, in an attempt to explore the creation of a thesaurus from text. Depending on usages, six ...
Integration of a lexical type database with a linguistically interpreted corpus
We have constructed a large scale and detailed database of lexical types in Japanese from a treebank that includes detailed linguistic information. The database helps treebank annotators and grammar developers to share ...
Exploiting semantic information for HPSG parse selection
In this paper we present a framework for experimentation on parse selection using syntactic and semantic features. Results are given for syntactic features, dependency relations and the use of semantic classes.
A lexicon module for a grammar development environment
Past approaches to developing an effective lexicon component in a grammar development environment have suffered from a number of usability and efficiency issues. We present a lexical database ...
Using an ontology to determine English countability
In this paper we show to what degree the countability of English nouns is predictable from their semantics. We found that at 78% of nouns' countability could ...
Towards a thesaurus of predicates
We propose a thesaurus of predicates that can help to resolve pre-editing and/or post-editing problems in machine translation environments. It differs from earlier approaches such as conventional dictionaries ...
MRD-based word sense disambiguation : further extending lesk
This paper reconsiders the task of MRD-based word sense disambiguation, in extending the basic Lesk algorithm to investigate the impact on WSD performance of different tokenisation schemes, scoring mechanisms, methods of ...
Word sense disambiguation incorporating lexical and structural semantic information
We present results that show that incorporating lexical and structural semantic information is effective for word sense disambiguation. We evaluated the method by using precise information from a large treebank and an ...
Learning the countability of English nouns from corpus data
This paper describes a method for learning the countability preferences of English nouns from raw text corpora. The method maps the corpus-attested lexico-syntactic properties of each noun onto ...
