OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between leisure physical activity and various pain symptoms in adolescents. METHODS In this nationwide cohort based cross sectional study in Finland, 698 schoolchildren, 344 girls and 354 boys, aged 10 to 17 years responded to a questionnaire on pain symptoms (neck and shoulder pain, upper back pain, low back(More)
In this paper, we investigate errors in syntax annotation with the Turku Dependency Treebank, a recently published treebank of Finnish, as study material. This treebank uses the Stanford Dependency scheme as its syntax representation, and its published data contains all data created in the full double annotation as well as timing information , both of which(More)
STUDY DESIGN A nationwide, cohort-based cross-sectional questionnaire survey as a part of a population study. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prevalence of low back pain among Finnish children and adolescents. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Low back pain is common already in adolescence, but the results concerning sex differences and peak age of the prevalence(More)
We investigated muscle strength, aerobic power, and occupational and leisure-time physical loading as predictors of back pain in a 5-year follow-up study. A cohort of 456 adults aged 25, 35, 45 and 55 years, free of back pain, participated in measurements of anthropometric characteristics, aerobic power and muscle strength characteristics at baseline. The(More)
OBJECTIVES In this paper, we study the development and domain-adaptation of statistical syntactic parsers for three different clinical domains in Finnish. METHODS AND MATERIALS The materials include text from daily nursing notes written by nurses in an intensive care unit, physicians' notes from cardiology patients' health records, and daily nursing notes(More)
In this work, we present the first results obtained during the annotation of a general Finnish treebank in the Stanford Dependency scheme. We find that the scheme is a suitable syntax representation for Finnish, with only minor modifications needed. The treebank is based on text from the Finnish Wikipedia, ensuring its free distribution and broad topical(More)
In this work, we present the first results of a project aiming at a Finnish Proposition Bank, an annotated corpus of semantic roles. The annotation is based on an existing treebank of Finnish, the Turku Dependency Treebank, annotated using the well-known Stanford Dependency scheme. We describe the use of the dependency treebank for PropBanking purposes and(More)
In this paper, we present a PropBank of clinical Finnish, an annotated corpus of verbal propositions and arguments. The clinical PropBank is created on top of a previously existing dependency treebank annotated in the Stanford Dependency (SD) scheme and covers 90% of all verb occurrences in the treebank. We establish that the PropBank scheme is applicable(More)
A random sample of 778 subjects representing ages 25, 35, 45 and 55 years were studied for the amount of habitual physical activity, their anthropometric structure, vertical jumping height, trunk extension and flexion torques and dynamic endurance fitness of trunk extension and flexion. The proportion of subjects who were habitually physically active did(More)
