Automatic Term Extraction Using Log-Likelihood Based Comparison with General Reference Corpus [chapter]

Alexander Gelbukh, Grigori Sidorov, Eduardo Lavin-Villa, Liliana Chanona-Hernandez
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The proposed method is based on comparison with general reference corpus using log-likelihood similarity.  ...  In the paper we present a method that allows an extraction of singleword terms for a specific domain. At the next stage these terms can be used as candidates for multi-word term extraction.  ...  The proposed method is based on comparison with general reference corpus using loglikelihood similarity that is used for corpus comparison.  ...

Stéphane M. Meystre, Óscar Ferrández, F. Jeffrey Friedlin, Brett R. South, Shuying Shen, Matthew H. Samore
2014 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
Automated Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods can alleviate this process, but their impact on subsequent uses of the automatically deidentified clinical narratives has only barely been investigated  ...  To study this impact in more details and assess how generalizable our findings were, we examined the overlap between select clinical information annotated in the 2010 i2b2 NLP challenge corpus and automatic  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Abhisek Trivedi and Matthew Maw for their help with these studies.

Speaker Verification Using Support Vector Machines and High-Level Features

William M. Campbell, Joseph P. Campbell, Terry P. Gleason, Douglas A. Reynolds, Wade Shen
2007 IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing  
We use support vector machine modeling of these n-gram frequencies for speaker verification. We derive a new kernel based upon linearizing a log likelihood ratio scoring system.  ...  We demonstrate that our methods produce results significantly better than standard log-likelihood ratio modeling.  ...  Both the standard TFIDF term weighting (9) and the log likelihood ratio (TFLLR) term weighting (6) methods were used.  ...

A corpus of Australian contract language

Michael Curtotti, Eric C. McCreath
2011 Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law - ICAIL '11  
Profiling of the corpus is consistent with its suitability for use in language engineering applications.  ...  The corpus conforms to Zipf's law and comparative type to token ratios are consistent with lower term sparsity (an expectation for legal language).  ...  Applied to words, the method calculates the log likelihood ('LL') ratio of the frequency of a word in frequency lists extracted from each corpus.  ...
