Modern environmental policy implementation in many developed countries is increasingly regionally oriented. Regional governments have undertaken measures designed for the specific needs of the region but, so far, the resulting change in environmental quality has hardly been monitored. This study develops a method for the quantitative evaluation of(More)
This paper presents an approach to disambiguating verb senses which differ wrt. the inferences they allow. It combines standard ontological tools and formalisms with in-depth formal semantic analysis and is therefore more formalised and more detailed than existing lexical semantic resources like WordNet and FrameNet. The resource presented here implements(More)
We present an approach to disambiguating verb senses which differ w.r.t. the inferences they allow. It combines standard ontological tools and formalisms with a formal semantic analysis and is hence more formalised and more detailed than existing lexical semantic resources like WordNet and FrameNet [Fellbaum, 1998, Baker et al., 1998].

The treatment of medieval texts is a particular challenge for parsers. I compare how two dependency parsers, one graph-based, the other transition-based, perform on Old French, facing some typical problems of medieval texts: graphical variation, relatively free word order, and syntactic variation of several parameters over a diachronic period of about 300(More)
In this study, we develop and apply a methodology to reduce an existing monitoring network to find an optimal configuration of a smaller network. We use a criterion based on locally weighted regression with two different weight functions. The methodology is applied to the Dutch national SO2 network and offers the possibility to include different politically(More)
This article presents the Syntactic Reference Corpus of Medieval French (SRCMF). The corpus is composed of texts taken from the two major Old French corpora, the Base de Français Médiéval and the Nouveau Corpus d'Amsterdam. This contribution describes some of the core principles of the annotation model, which is based on dependency grammar, as well as the(More)

We demonstrate 10-Gb/s optical data channels through broadband hitless switches, with open eye-diagrams and error-free operation (BERs less than 10<sup>-12</sup>). Both through- and drop-ports are measured in the hitless operation for transparent chip-scale optical networks.
