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)
Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne pathogen that can cause bacteraemia, meningitis, and complications during pregnancy. In July 2012, molecular subtyping identified indistinguishable L. monocytogenes isolates from six patients and two samples of different cut and repackaged cheeses. A multistate outbreak investigation was initiated. Initial analyses(More)
It is common knowledge that the creation of language resources for Language Engineering (LE) applications is a time-consuming, and hence expensive, enterprise. From this knowledge stems the demand for the re-usability of resources, which always remains essential. In this paper we will, however, concentrate on another, complementary, aspect, namely that of(More)
This paper reports on a corpus-based, contrastive study of the Swedish and English medical language in the cancer sub-domain. It is focused on the examination of a number of linguistic parameters differentiating two types of cancer-related textual material, one intended for medical experts and one for laymen. Language-dependent and language independent(More)
This paper reports on the work carried out developing MedLex+, a medical corpuslexicon workbench for Swedish. This project, which is still under active development, has been going on for some years now within the Department of Swedish language at Göteborg University. At the moment, the workbench incorporates: an annotated collection of medical(More)
In this paper we present a pilot study on the development of a FrameNet-like annotation of a sample of Swedish medical corpora, for a selected set of verbal predicates. We explore and exploit a number of linguistic tools for the provision of much of the necessary annotations required by such a semantic scheme. Particular attention is paid to the syntactic(More)
Inhibition of human leukocyte elastase(HLE) by a series of 6-acylamino-2-[(ethylsulfonyl)oxy)]-1H-isoindole-1,3-diones was determined and compared to their inhibition of ChT, PPE, and Cat G. The best inhibitor of the series was 6-((1'S)-camphanyl)amino-2-[(ethylsulfonyl) oxy]-1H-isoindole-1,3-dione 5b, with a k(obs)/[I] = 11,000 M(-1) s(-1). This study(More)
