In order to accomplish the deep semantic understanding of a language, it is essential to analyze the meaning of predicate phrases, a content word plus functional expressions. In agglutinating languages such as Japanese, however, sentential predicates are multi-morpheme expressions and all the functional expressions including those unnecessary to the meaning(More)
Assisting in foreign language learning is one of the major areas in which natural language processing technology can contribute. This paper proposes a computerized method of measuring communicative skill in English as a foreign language. The proposed method consists of two parts. The first part involves a test sentence selection part to achieve precise(More)
This paper describes an IR (Information Retrieval) approach to identifying the ICD-10 code of a medical term, such as a disease name or a description of a symptom or a complaint), in a medical text. In this approach, we prepare a dictionary of disease names, each paired with a corresponding ICD-10 code(s). The system searches for the disease name most(More)
We suggest a naïve Bayes method for Japanese recipe pairing which uses ingredients of main and side dishes. For every pair of ingredients in the learning data, we calculate the probability of the co-occurrence. For a main dish of the evaluation, we guess a side dish whose posterior probability has the maximum value. In our experiment, the domain of(More)
In this paper we evaluate the Basic Travel Expression Corpus (BTEC), developed by ATR (Advanced Telecommunication Research Laboratory), Japan. BTEC was specifically developed as a wide-coverage, consistent corpus containing basic Japanese travel expressions with English counterparts, for the purpose of providing basic data for the development of high(More)
In this paper, we show a special example distribution on which the learner can guess a correct simple deterministic grammar in polynomial time from membership queries and random examples. At first, we show a learning algorithm of simple deterministic languages from membership and equivalence queries. This algorithm is not a polynomial time algorithm but,(More)
