Sprachverstehen ist in hohem Mase situativ beeinflust. Um diese Charakteristik des menschlichen Vorbilds in technische Losungen zu ubertragen, wird eine Verarbeitungsarchitektur entwickelt, die in der Lage ist, sehr unterschiedliche informationelle Beitrage in einem einheitlichen Entscheidungsverfahren zusammenzufassen. Am Beispiel eines Einsatzes in Lehrsystemen fur den Premdsprachenunterricht wird gezeigt, wie propositional reprasentierte piktorielle Information eine robuste Analyse von… 

Parsing mit inkonsistenten Grammatiken

A novel approach to the parsing of natural language based on weighted constraints is presented, focussing on robustness against deviating utterances and external temporal pressure.



Constraint-based Diagnosis for Intelligent Language Tutoring Systems

A solution is presented which provides language learning systems with the desired diagnostic capabilities for a wide range of syntactic, semantic, and domain--related phenomena.

Modeling dependency grammar with restricted constraints

Dans cet article, l'analyse syntaxique avec une grammaire de dependance est modelise comme un probleme de satisfaction de contraintes. L'article decrit un type particulier de contraintes, assez

Generation of language models using the results of image analysis

A new approach towards using contextual information to enhance speech recognition and understanding is presented and Dynamically inferred knowledge about the context is used in addition to the static linguistic and domain speci c knowledge.

Natural Language Parsing: Psychological, Computational, and Theoretical Perspectives

An Efficient Distribution of Labor in a Two Stage Robust Interpretation Process

This paper presents an alternative approach where the labor is distributed between a more restrictive partial parser and a repair module, making it possible to achieve a similar run time advantage over MDP without losing the quality of domain independence.

From Cognitive Semantics to Lexical Pragmatics: The Functional Polysemy of Discourse Particles

This methodologically interdisciplinary study not only presents a general model of polysemy which includes structural aspects, a conceptual background frame, and the contribution of the lexeme, it also provides full coverage for the functional readings of discourse particles and a unified definition of the word class.

Robust Processing of Natural Language

The paper analyses the necessary preconditions for achieving a higher degree of robustness in natural language processing and suggests a quite different approach based on a procedure for structural disambiguation that not only offers the possibility to cope with robustness issues in a more natural way but eventually might be suited to accommodate quite different aspects of robust behaviour within a single framework.

Modularity in Knowledge Representation and Natural-Language Understanding

This book presents essays in which a diverse group of philosophers, linguists, psycholinguists, and neuroscientists--including both proponents and critics of the modularity hypothesis--address general questions and specific problems related to modularity.

Prosodic cues as basis for restructuring

In most of the cases spontaneaously uttered units of speech (e.g. in face-to-face dialogues) contain performance phenomena like repairs, breaking offs, omissions and others that motivate a

Error Analysis and Explanation in Knowledge Based Language Tutoring.

Using a feature grammar, it is possible to describe various types of errors in natural language sentences in a uniform framework, to define in a clear and transparent way what an error is and this is very important for the application to analyse errors as arising from a misunderstanding or ignorance of grammatical rules on the part of the students.
