Three main components of experience base in linguistic description of data

Abstract

In this paper, we present a contribution to solve the problem of organizing the representation of experience in computational systems which are able to generate relevant linguistic descriptions of data for specific users and contexts. We claim, that, typically, the expert knowledge modeled in these systems is limited to one of the dimensions of the meaning of natural language. Here, we model the experience base distinguishing among three types of meaning, namely, Ideational meaning concerning with the technical, impersonal description of the specific phenomenon; Interpersonal meaning concerning with the role of the partners involved in the communication process and Textual meaning concerning with the contribution to the meaning of the specific realization with natural language of both previous types of meaning. In order to organize these types of meaning (also called components of experience base) in a practical computational representation, we have built an ontology that will help designers to model their experience in the application domain. Using this ontology, the computational system is able of identifying the most suitable linguistic descriptions for describing the input data. Our approach is presented with the support of a practical example in the domain of the maintenance of comfort in a room.
