Regional Effects on Query Reformulation Patterns [chapter]

Steph Jesper, Paul Clough, Mark Hall
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A total of 1,700 sessions involving 9,447 queries from 17 countries were manually analyzed for their semantic composition and pairs of queries for their reformulation type.  ...  Results show country-level variations for the types of queries commonly issued and typical patterns of query reformulation.  ...  The first type reflects the situation in which a user refines a query to be more specific, typically by adding terms to a query.  ...

Query Expansion using Semantic Network for Information Retrieval in Telugu Language

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
In Query expansion, if the added query term is an ambiguous word, accuracy of relevant documents will be very less.  ...  Query plays a major role in information retrieval system, as a result relevant and non relevant documents are retrieved.  ...  A query added term is a ambiguous word, a word having multiple senses in different context. A Query is reformulated by adding the appropriate meaning of the query term in the given context.  ...

We proposed 'Query morphing', an approach for query reformulation based on data exploration. Identified design concerns and implementation constraints are also discussed for the proposed approach.  ...  Fundamental understanding of complex schema and content is necessary for formulating data retrieval request.  ...  For successful reformulation it is better to understand the searchers intend and for that query rewriting can be a good option for query transformation.  ...
