Automatic Word Categorization with Genetic Algorithms

  title={Automatic Word Categorization with Genetic Algorithms},
  author={Marc M. Lankhorst},
This paper presents a novel approach to the automatic categorization of words from raw data. We count occurrences of word pairs in text and use a genetic algorithm on the obtained data to infer a classification of words into linguistic categories. As a fitness criterion, we use an information-theoretic measure on the frequency data. The main advantage of a data-oriented method in categorizing words lies in the possibility to construct linguistic categories that combine both syntactic and… CONTINUE READING
