Figures 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.

Language Model Analysis for Ontology Subsumption Inference

This work proposes OntoLAMA, a set of inference-based probing tasks and datasets from ontology subsumption axioms involving both atomic and complex concepts that demonstrate that LMs encode relatively less background knowledge of Subsumption Inference than traditional Natural Language Inference but can improve on SI significantly when a small number of samples are given.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Dealing with Ambiguities by Underspecification: Construction, Representation and Deduction

A theory of language meaning that represents scope ambiguities by underspecified structures that relates these structures directly, without considering cases is provided.

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.

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.

Towards a Logic of Ambiguous Expressions 1 Coping with Ambiguous Information

Ambiguity has more than once been identiied as the main single obstacle for various natural language processing tasks (e.g., Bar-Hillel 1960, Car-bonel and Hayes 1987). Surprisingly, however, the

Probabilistic part-of-speech tagging using decision trees

In this paper, a new probabilistic tagging method is presented which avoids problems that Markov Model based taggers face, when they have to estimate transition probabilities from sparse data. In
