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.
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 ...
Building a cross-lingual referential knowledge database using dictionaries
Referential knowledge is vital for resolving various problems in NLP, such as anaphora resolution. For example, we have the referential knowledge that diagnose is most likely a member of the referential relation ‘doctor ...
Acquiring an ontology for a fundamental vocabulary
In this paper we describe the extraction of thesaurus information from parsed dictionary definition sentences. The main data for our experiments comes from Lexeed, a Japanese semantic dictionary, and the Hinoki treebank ...
The Hinoki treebank : a treebank for text understanding
In this paper we describe the motivation for and construction of a new Japanese lexical resource: the Hinoki treebank. The treebank is ...
Multilingual ontology acquisition from multiple MRDs
In this paper, we outline the development of a system that automatically constructs ontologies by extracting knowledge from dictionary definition sentences using Robust Minimal Recursion Semantics (RMRS). ...
Extracting representative arguments from dictionaries for resolving zero pronouns
We propose a method to alleviate the problem of referential granularity for Japanese zero pronoun resolution. We use dictionary definition sentences to extract ‘representative’ arguments of predicative definition words; ...
High precision treebanking - blazing useful trees using POS information
In this paper we present a quantitative and qualitative analysis of annotation in the Hinoki treebank of Japanese, and investigate a ...
