Variability in IR has been little considered as a way to improve system performance. In this paper, we consider linguistic variability of queries as a clue to predict which system will perform better for a particular query. More precisely, we cluster TREC topics with regard to 16 linguistic features. To each cluster is then associated a system that will be… CONTINUE READING
