This paper discusses the use of computational linguistic technology to extract definitions from a large corpus of German court decisions. We present a corpus-based survey of definition structures used in this kind of text. We then evaluate the results of a definition extraction system that uses patterns identified in this survey to extract from dependency(More)
This research explains the melt spinning of bicomponent fibers, consisting of a conductive polypropylene (PP) core and a piezoelectric sheath (polyvinylidene fluoride). Previously analyzed piezoelectric capabilities of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) are to be exploited in sensor filaments. The PP compound contains a 10 wt % carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and 2 wt(More)
The name Computational Linguistics already suggests that this displine comprises two related objects of research: natural language (NL) is studied and operational methods are developed. Both fields are investigated in their own right and divide into various topics. This course introduces a variety of NL phenomena together with appropriate implementations in(More)
