This report describes the development of a parsing system for written Swedish and is focused on a grammar, the main component of the system, semiautomatically extracted from corpora. A cascaded, finite-state algorithm is applied to the grammar in which the input contains coarse-grained semantic class information, and the output produced reflects not only(More)
This paper is about the application of Machine Learning techniques to the prepositional-phrase attachment ambiguity problem. Since Machine Learning requires large amounts of training instances, the mixture of unsupervised and restricted supervised acquisition of such data will be also reported. Training was performed both on a subset of the content of the(More)
Access to multi-layered lexical, grammatical and semantic information representing text content is a prerequisite for efficient automatic understanding and generation of natural language. A FrameNet is considered a valuable resource for both linguistics and language technology research that may contribute to the achievement of these goals. Currently,(More)
This paper describes the development of a new Swedish scientific medical corpus. We provide a detailed description of the characteristics of this new collection as well results of an application of the corpus on term management tasks, including terminology validation and terminology extraction.

This paper describes the way in which personal relationships between main characters in 19 century Swedish prose fiction can be identified using information guided by named entities, provided by a entity recognition system adapted to the 19 century Swedish language characteristics. Interpersonal relation extraction is based on the context between two(More)
This paper provides a description and evaluation of a generic named-entity recognition (NER) system for Swedish applied to electronic versions of Swedish literary classics from the 19th century. We discuss the challenges posed by these texts and the necessary adaptations introduced into the NER system in order to achieve accurate results, useful both for(More)
We present a comparative study of Finnish and Swedish free-text nursing narratives from intensive care. Although the two languages are linguistically very dissimilar, our hypothesis is that there are similarities that are important and interesting from a language technology point of view. This may have implications when building tools to support producing(More)
