Figures and Topics from this paper

An ontology of linguistic annotations
The ontology is intended to be a platform for terminological integration, integrated representation and ontology-based search across existing linguistic resources with terminologically heterogeneous annotations and can be applied to augment the semantic analysis of a given text with an ontological interpretation of its morphosyntactic analysis.

ORAKEL: A Natural Language Interface to an F-Logic Knowledge Base
RAKEL is a natural language interface which translates wh-questions into logical queries and evaluates them with respect to a given knowledge base and makes use of a compositional approach in order to construct the semantics of a wh-question. Expand
Syntactic disambiguation in constructions with attachment ambiguity with adjuncts by means of ontological semantics
It is proved that accuracy of syntactic disambiguation directly depends on fine-tuning ontological concepts as well as other AIIRE tools as Ontohelper and ontology. Expand
Ontology-Based Interpretation of Natural Language
This book focuses on the interpretation of natural language with respect to specific domain knowledge captured in ontologies, and introduces an introduction to ontologies and demonstrates how linguistic information can be attached to them by means of the ontology lexicon model. Expand
Linguistically Motivated Ontology-Based Information Retrieval
The SE-DSNL approach provides experts with the ability to specify how ontological knowledge can be mapped to linguistic information of any known language precisely and provides a flexible and generic meta model which captures all the relevant information. Expand
Ontologies of Linguistic Annotation: Survey and perspectives
The OLiA ontologies represent a repository of annotation terminology for various linguistic phenomena on a great band-width of languages and are summarized in this paper. Expand
Towards Robust Multi-Tool Tagging. An OWL/DL-Based Approach
It is shown how annotations created by seven NLP tools are mapped onto tool-independent descriptions that are defined with reference to an ontology of linguistic annotations, and how a majority vote and ontological consistency constraints can be used to integrate multiple alternative analyses of the same token in a consistent way.

  • 2008
A text-technological approach to text analysis as combination of a multi-level representation framework and XML-based document processing techniques for local coherence analysis, i.e. the computation of coherence relations between text spans. Expand
Ontology-Based Interface Specifications for a NLP Pipeline Architecture
This paper describes how UIMA annotations can be backed up by ontological specifications of annotation schemes as in the OLiA model, and how these are linked to the OntoTag ontologies, which allow for further ontological processing. Expand
A Multi-resolution Framework for Information Extraction from Free Text
This paper re-examines the problem at the multiresolution layers of phrase, clause and sentence using dependency and discourse relations using the multi-resolution framework ARE (Anchor and Relation) to filter noisy dependency paths and increase reliability of dependency path extraction. Expand


Talking about Trees and Truth-Conditions
Logical Description Grammar (LDG), a model ofgrammar and the syntax-semantics interface based on descriptions inelementary logic, offers a natural way of dealing with underspecification in natural language syntax andsemantics. Expand

Corelex: systematic polysemy and underspecification
The thesis establishes an ontology and semantic database (CoreLex) of 126 semantic types, covering around 40,000 nouns and a large number of systematic polysemous classes that are derived by a careful analysis of sense distributions in WordNet. Expand
The Semantics of Lexical Underspecification
It is argued that members of these classes must be represented as complex types, as they do not allow for simple conjunctive typing, and display a peculiar behavior regarding the quantificational force of the type which is absent from other nominal and verbal classes. Expand

A Lexicon for Underspecified Semantic Tagging
The paper defends the notion that semantic tagging should be viewed as more than disambiguation between senses and develops a new type of semantic lexicon that supports underspecified semantic tagging through a design based on systematic polysemous classes and a class-based acquisition of lexical knowledge for specific domains.
