Many recent findings suggest that the nervous system has efferent effects on bone. A putative role of the sensory innervation has been assessed by using a synchronised rat model of bone resorption after treating adult animals with the neurotoxin capsaicin. Fourteen days after capsaicin treatment (50 mg kg-1) the right maxillary molars were extracted to(More)
Using distributional analysis methods to compute semantic proximity links between words has become commonplace in NLP. This paper focuses on the issues of evaluating a distributional resource. We consider that setting up an evaluation procedure is a first step towards the characterization of the resource, and a way to improve its overall quality. We then(More)
In this paper, we present an analysis based on linguistic and typographic features that allows for the identification of titles in web documents. We focus in particular on procedural texts. Identifying titles is a difficult task because ways of encoding them are very diverse. A number of titles are also incomplete because of context, we propose therefore a(More)
In this paper, we aim at automatically identifying Elaboration. This relation is particularly difficult to spot since it does not have prototypical markers. Our approach focuses on an ambiguous syntactic pattern, the gerund clause, combined with lexical cues. This approach allows us to detect few but accurate cases of inner sentence Elaborations in our(More)
Using distributional analysis methods to compute semantic proximity links between words has become commonplace in NLP. The resulting relations are often noisy or difficult to interpret in general. This paper focuses on the issues of evaluating a distributional resource and filtering the relations it contains, but instead of considering it in abstracto, we(More)
This paper brings a contribution to the field of discourse annotation of corpora. Using ANNODIS, a french corpus annotated with discourse relations by naive and expert annotators, we focus on two of them, Elaboration and Entity-Elaboration. These two very frequent relations are (a) often confused by naive annotators (b) difficult to detect automatically as(More)
