A Proposal for a Framework to Evaluate Feature Relevance for Terminographic Definitions

  title={A Proposal for a Framework to Evaluate Feature Relevance for Terminographic Definitions},
  author={S. Sepp{\"a}l{\"a}},
In this paper, a terminological framework, both theoretical and methodological, backed by empirical data, is proposed in order to highlight the particular questions to which attention should be paid when conceiving an evaluation scheme for definition extraction (DE) in terminology. The premise is that not just any information is relevant to defining a given concept in a given expert domain. Therefore, evaluation guidelines applicable to DE should integrate some understanding of what is relevant…

An ontological framework for modeling the contents of definitions

The objectives of this article are to show that it is possible to create implementable generic definition models, to show how to constrain these models to produce definitions relevant to particular contexts, and to propose an ontological analysis framework with a fixed and well-motivated descriptive vocabulary.

La representaci\'on de la variaci\'on contextual mediante definiciones terminol\'ogicas flexibles

This doctoral thesis applies premises of cognitive linguistics to terminological definitions and presents a proposal called the flexible terminological definition, which consists of a set of definitions of the same concept made up of a general definition along with additional definitions describing the concept from the perspective of the subdomains in which it is relevant.

Automatic extraction of definitions

This doctoral research work provides a set of methods and heuristics for building a definition extractor or for fine-tuning an existing one. In order to develop and test the architecture, a generic

Multidimensional Categorization in Terminological Definitions 1

The representation of context-dependent multidimensionality in EcoLexicon is described and, more specifically, how this phenomenon is managed in terminological definitions is described.

An Explainable Machine Learning Approach for Definition Extraction

Transformer based architectures, like Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) are explored, which produce state-of-the-art results on many Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks and reveal that BERT captures not only syntactic dependencies but many other relevant dependencies within the words of the sentence, which proves beneficial in Definition Extraction.

Coping with highly imbalanced datasets: A case study with definition extraction in a multilingual setting

A contribution to the seminal work in natural language processing that points toward the importance of exploring the research path of applying sampling techniques to mitigate the bias induced by highly imbalanced datasets, and thus greatly improving the performance of a large range of tools that rely on them.

Machine Learning, Image Processing, Network Security and Data Sciences: Second International Conference, MIND 2020, Silchar, India, July 30 - 31, 2020, Proceedings, Part II

An overview of CFARM algorithm and a composite dataset is prepared to generate rules and experimental results are presented and analyzed with different measures of interestingness along with scope of future works.

Weakly Supervised Definition Extraction

This paper presents a meta-modelling framework that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of manually cataloging and annotating language components.

Applying Dependency Relations to Definition Extraction

This paper presents a supervised approach to Definition Extraction in which only syntactic features derived from dependency relations are used and suggests that syntactic information alone can contribute substantially to the development and improvement of DE systems.

A model for the definition of concepts: rules for analytical definitions in terminological databases

A model for the terminological definition of concepts is proposed that is considered more appropriate to data-processing applications than present patterns of definition and should permit automatic prompting and control of the defining activity, highly efficient data storage and greater information extraction in retrieval.
