Jesús Vilares, Carlos Gómez-Rodríguez, Miguel A. Alonso
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 ACM symposium on Document engineering - DocEng '05  
The use of Natural Language Processing techniques to manage this problem has been studied for a long time, but mainly focusing on English.  ...  In this paper we deal with European languages, taking Spanish as a case in point.  ...  Shallow parsing has shown itself to be useful in several NLP application fields, particularly in Information Extraction [7] , although its application in IR has not yet been studied in depth.  ...

Morphological and Syntactic Processing for Text Retrieval [chapter]

Jesús Vilares, Miguel A. Alonso, Manuel Vilares
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This article describes the application of lemmatization and shallow parsing as a linguistically-based alternative to stemming in Text Retrieval, with the aim of managing linguistic variation at both word  ...  Several alternatives for selecting the index terms among the syntactic dependencies detected by the parser are evaluated.  ...  The other two approaches employ shallow parsing to manage syntactic variation by using syntactic dependencies as complex index terms.  ...

COLE Experiments at CLEF 2003 in the Spanish Monolingual Track [chapter]

Jesús Vilares, Miguel A. Alonso, Francisco J. Ribadas
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This process is performed in two steps: firstly, the text is parsed by means of a shallow parser and, secondly, the syntactic dependencies are extracted and conflated into index terms.  ...  For this purpose, we will extract the pairs of words related through syntactic dependencies in order to use them as complex index terms.  ...  Acknowledgements The research described in this paper has been supported in part by Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología (TIC2000-0370-C02-01, HP2001-0044 and HF2002-81), FPU grants of Secretaría de Estado  ...

Noun-Phrase Analysis in Unrestricted Text for Information Retrieval [article]

David A. Evans, Chengxiang Zhai
1996 arXiv   pre-print
In particular, we describe a hybrid approach to the extraction of meaningful (continuous or discontinuous) subcompounds from complex noun phrases using both corpus statistics and linguistic heuristics.  ...  Results of experiments show that indexing based on such extracted subcompounds improves both recall and precision in an information retrieval system.  ...  The evaluation of the experimental results would have been impossible without the help of Robert Lefferts and Nataša Milić-Frayling at CLARITECH Corporation.  ...

Efficient Question Answering with Question Decomposition and Multiple Answer Streams [chapter]

Sven Hartrumpf, Ingo Glöckner, Johannes Leveling
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
IRSAW was introduced in 2007, by integrating the deep answer producer InSicht, several shallow answer producers, and a logical validator.  ...  Using RAVE for merging the results of the answer producers, monolingual German runs and bilingual runs with source language English and Spanish were produced by applying a machine translation web service  ...  The actual extraction performance achieved by the answer producers of the shallow subsystem of IR-SAW has also been investigated, see Table 3 .  ...

On the Usefulness of Extracting Syntactic Dependencies for Text Indexing [chapter]

Miguel A. Alonso, Jesús Vilares, Víctor M. Darriba
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we study the impact of using such information, in the form of syntactic dependency pairs, in the performance of a text retrieval system for a Romance language, Spanish.  ...  In particular, different degrees of phrase-level syntactic information have been incorporated in information retrieval systems working on English or Germanic languages such as Dutch.  ...  The research reported in this article has been supported in part by Plan Nacional de Investigación Científica, Desarrollo e Innovación Tecnológica (Grant TIC2000-0370-C02-01), Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología  ...

Information Extraction: Past, Present and Future [chapter]

Jakub Piskorski, Roman Yangarber
2012 Multi-source, Multilingual Information Extraction and Summarization  
In this chapter we present a brief overview of Information Extraction, which is an area of natural language processing that deals with finding factual information in free text.  ...  In formal terms, facts are structured objects, such as database records.  ...  [58] describes an approach to segmentation and classification of a wider range of names in tweets based on CRFs (using POS and shallow parsing features) and Labeled Latent Dirichlet Allocation respectively  ...

A Survey of Text Question Answering Techniques

Poonam Gupta, Vishal Gupta
2012 International Journal of Computer Applications  
QA systems give the ability to answer questions posed in natural language by extracting, from a repository of documents, fragments of documents that contain material relevant to the answer.  ...  Question classification play primary role in QA system to categorize the question based upon on the type of its entity.  ...  IR systems are usually based on the segmentation of documents and queries into index terms, and their relevance is computed according to the index terms they have in common, as well as according to other  ...

2004 Proceedings of the 13th conference on World Wide Web - WWW '04  
Compare the QA situation with IR engines, which are largely based on the now-standard vector-space model and TFIDF ranking, a declarative specification of what is a good matching document.  ...  We built our system in only a few person-months using offthe-shelf components: a part-of-speech tagger, a shallow parser, a lexical network, and a few well-known supervised learning algorithms.  ...  Acknowledgments: This research was supported in part by Tata Consultancy Services, IBM Research, and NEC Research.  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
However, in spite of the progress, our recent survey shows that there is still a lack of systematic understanding and organization of commonly used NLP techniques in RE.  ...  We believe these two ways of classification are complementary, contributing to a better understanding of the NLP techniques in RE and such understanding is crucial to the development of better NLP tools  ...  Related Term: Semantic parsing, semantic trees, shallow parsing, and shallow semantic analysis.  ...

An Initial Proposal for Cooperative Evaluation on Information Retrieval in Portuguese [chapter]

Rachel Aires, Sandra Aluísio, Paulo Quaresma, Diana Santos, Mário J. Silva
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we discuss evaluation of information retrieval, Web search and question answering systems, paving the way for the organization of an evaluation contest on IR for Portuguese.  ...  Inspired by current international setups, we motivate the need to study the specific problems posed by Portuguese, suggesting a collection suitable for multiple tasks.  ...  For researchers of the first profile, it is advantageous to identify the challenges posed by IR in Portuguese, especially where an English-based architecture will be likely to miss the point.  ...
