Experiments with LSA for Passage Re-Ranking in Question Answering

David Tomás, José Luis Vicedo González, Empar Bisbal, Lidia Moreno
2006 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
To take advantage of the flexibility and adaptability of our machine learning based proposal, this year we extended our participation to monolingual Spanish task and bilingual Spanish-English task.  ...  We reach a best overall accuracy of 29.47% in the first task and 20.00% in the second one.  ...  Thus, this year we extended our participation from the original monolingual Spanish task to bilingual Spanish-English task, as we wanted to test the system in a different language that the one it was originally  ...

How Do Named Entities Contribute to Retrieval Effectiveness? [chapter]

Thomas Mandl, Christa Womser-Hacker
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We found that a medium positive correlation exists for German, English and Spanish topics. Furthermore, we analyze the effect of the document or target language on the retrieval quality.  ...  Named entities in topics are a major factor contributing to the quality of retrieval results.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Martin Braschler for providing the crucial data for our study.  ...

REINA at CLEF 2009 Robust-WSD Task: Partial Use of WSD Information for Retrieval

Ángel F. Zazo Rodríguez, Carlos G. Figuerola, José Luis Alonso Berrocal, Raquel Gómez Díaz
2009 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
In bilingual retrieval experiments, two on-line machine translation programs were used to translate topics, and translations were merged before performing a monolingual retrieval.  ...  This paper describes the participation of the REINA research group at CLEF 2009 Robust-WSD Task. We have participated in both monolingual and bilingual subtasks.  ...  For the bilingual retrieval, the use of on-line MT programs to translate topics is a good approach for CLIR.  ...

Combining Evidence for Cross-Language Information Retrieval [chapter]

Jaap Kamps, Christof Monz, Maarten de Rijke
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also conducted our first experiments for the bilingual task (English to Dutch, and English to German), and took part in the GIRT and Amaryllis tasks.  ...  We took part in the monolingual tasks for each of the seven non-English languages for which CLEF provides document collections (Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Swedish).  ...  For the bilingual runs, we followed a dictionary-based approach.  ...

Do grammatical–gender distinctions learned in the second language influence native-language lexical processing?

Margarita Kaushanskaya, Samantha Smith
2015 International Journal of Bilingualism  
We tested three groups of adult English native speakers: monolinguals, emergent bilinguals with high exposure to Spanish, and emergent bilinguals with low exposure to Spanish.  ...  Participants engaged in an associative learning task in English where they learned to associate names of inanimate objects with proper names.  ...  The authors would like to thank all the members of the Language Acquisition and Bilingualism Lab for their helpful suggestions on this work. Kaushanskaya and Smith  ...

CONTROL: CLEF-2003 with Open, Transparent Resources Off-Line

Monica Rogati, Yiming Yang
2003 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
We participated in two bilingual runs and the small multilingual run using software and data that are free to obtain, transparent and modifiable.  ...  Our goal is to be one of the CLEF participants who show that the hypothetical performance drop is not large enough to justify the loss of control and transparency, especially for research systems.  ...  In section 3 we discuss our approach to bilingual retrieval in general as well as approaches for situations where a parallel corpus between the two languages does not exist.  ...

Cross-lingual information retrieval using hidden Markov models

Jinxi Xu, Ralph Weischedel
2000 Proceedings of the 2000 Joint SIGDAT conference on Empirical methods in natural language processing and very large corpora held in conjunction with the 38th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics -  
This paper presents empirical results in cross-lingual information retrieval using English queries to access Chinese documents (TREC-5 and TREC-6) and Spanish documents (TREC-4).  ...  We explore how a combined probability model of term translation and retrieval can reduce the effect of translation ambiguity.  ...  Our Spanish mono-lingual performance is also comparable to the top automatic runs of the TREC4 Spanish task (Harrnan, 1996) .  ...
