This paper proposes a segmentation standard for Chinese natural language processing. The standard is proposed to achieve linguistic felicity, computational feasibility, and data uniformity. Linguistic felicity is maintained by defining a segmentation unit to be equivalent to the theoretical definition of word, and by providing a set of segmentation(More)
Ovarian cancer (OC) is the third most common type of gynecological cancer. Measurements of human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) levels have been suggested for improving the specificity of the laboratory identification of OC. For this meta-analysis, the Medline, Embase and Cochrane databases were searched to identify relevant studies. All the included studies(More)
In this paper we will explore the consistent contrast between VV-compounds and non-Wcompounds across seven subgroups of verbs of emotion. The distinctive syntactic features for the contrast include the distribution of the grammatical functions, the cooccrrence restrictions with head nouns and head verbs, the compatibilities with the imperative and(More)
The goal of this paper is to explicate the nature of Chinese nominal semantics, and to create a paradigm for nominal semantics in general that will be useful for natural language processing purposes. We first point out that a lexical item may have two meanings simultaneously, and that current models of lexical semantic representation cannot handle this(More)
This study examines near synonyms and tries to extract the contrasts that dictate their semantic and associated syntactic behaviors. A near synonym pair of Chinese verbs, fangbian and bianli, which mean ‘to be convenient’, is under examination. Corpus data reveal some important but opaque distributional differences between this synonym pair that are hard to(More)
Phosphorus (P) is one of the essential nutrient elements for plant growth and development because of its low availability and mobility in soil. To investigate genes which are involved in Pi starvation response in leaves and roots of Brassica napus, a survey of genes induced in Pi starvation was done by macroarray analysis. Among 3,000 cDNA clones, 94 genes(More)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the healthy and unhealthy behaviors as risk factors for chronic constipation and self-rated health status. Eight hundred tenth students enrolled from a university in Miaoli city, Taiwan. Chronic constipation was assessed using Chinese questionnaire. Information of unhealthy and healthy lifestyles was interviewed by(More)
Phosphorus (P) is one of the essential nutrient elements for plant development. In this work, BnPht1;4 gene, encoding a phosphate transporter of PHT1 family, was isolated from Brassica napus. BnPht1;4 possesses the major characteristic of PHT1 high-affinity Pi transporters in plants, such as plasma-membrane localization and 12 transmembrane-spanning(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expression of GITR/GITRL in rheumatoid arthritis(RA) and its correlation with clinical features of the disease. METHODS Fifty three RA patients, 35 osteoarthritis (OA) patients and 35 healthy volunteers were included in the study. The real-time-fluorescence quantitative PCR method was used to analyze the expression level of(More)
