SentimentWortschatz, or SentiWS for short, is a publicly available German-language resource for sentiment analysis, opinion mining etc. It lists positive and negative sentiment bearing words weighted within the interval of [−1; 1] plus their part of speech tag, and if applicable, their inflections. The current version of SentiWS (v1.8b) contains 1,650(More)
PHACE (OMIM no. 606519) is a neurocutaneous syndrome that refers to the association of large, plaque-like, "segmental" hemangiomas of the face, with one or more of the following anomalies: posterior fossa brain malformations, arterial cerebrovascular anomalies, cardiovascular anomalies, eye anomalies, and ventral developmental defects, specifically sternal(More)
This paper describes the application of statistical analysis of large corpora to the problem of extracting semantic relations from unstructured text. We regard this approach as a viable method for generating input for the construction of ontologies as ontologies use well-defined semantic relations as building blocks (cf. van der Vet & Mars 1998). Starting(More)
Management of arterial access sites following percutaneous endovascular procedures is associated with patient discomfort and local complications. A new vascular sealing device, comprised of a balloon delivery catheter and a flowable procoagulant consisting of thrombin and collagen, was tested. Immediately following catheterization 200 patients (age, 66.1(More)
We present a novel method to visualize multidimensional point clouds. While conventional visualization techniques, like scatterplot matrices or parallel coordinates, have issues with either overplotting of entities or handling many dimensions, we abstract the data using topological methods before presenting it. We assume the input points to be samples of a(More)
In this paper we describe a flexible, portable and language-independent infrastructure for setting up large monolingual language corpora. The approach is based on collecting a large amount of monolingual text from various sources. The input data is processed on the basis of a sentence-based text segmentation algorithm. We describe the entry structure of the(More)
Figure 1: Island-like visualization of a document point cloud's topological structure. By sharing similar dimensions, documents accumulate in subspaces of the high dimensional information space. Considering dimensions as words, clusters are assumed to describe topics, i.e., islands, in the final visualization. ABSTRACT During the last decades, electronic(More)
ASV Toolbox is a modular collection of tools for the exploration of written language data both for scientific and educational purposes. It includes modules that operate on word lists or texts and allow to perform various linguistic annotation, classification and clustering tasks, including language detection, POS–tagging, base form reduction, named entity(More)
