We evaluate two types of lexical resources with respect to their applicability to interlingual machine translation: (1) a EuroWordNetbased database of bilingual links between Spanish and English words; and (2) a repository of semantically classified verbs with their corresponding Lexical Conceptual Structure (LCS) representations. We examine the utility of(More)
In the context of Information Retrieval System (IRS), semantic coherence between text and the terms chosen to represent them, provides precision in the answers returned to the user. So, for the improvement of the capacity of these systems, it is necessary to design and develop methods based on a semantic text processing, for choosing the appropriate terms,(More)
