  • Suffix derivations (SDs) are used with query expansion in concept mapping as an effective Natural Language Processing (NLP) technique to improve recall without sacrificing precision. A systematic approach was proposed to generate derivations in the SPECIALIST Lexical Tools in which SD candidate rules were used to retrieve SD-pairs from the SPECIALIST Lexicon (Lu et al., 2012). Good SD candidate rules are gathered as SD-Rules in Lexical Tools for generating SDs that are not known to the Lexicon… CONTINUE READING
