On TimeML-Compliant Temporal Expression Extraction in Turkish [article]

Dilek Küçük, Doğan Küçük
2015 arXiv   pre-print
Extraction and normalization of temporal expressions in Turkish has not been given attention so far except the extraction of some date and time expressions within the course of named entity recognition  ...  We believe that the proposed patterns, together with convenient normalization rules, can be readily used by prospective temporal expression extraction tools for Turkish.  ...  expression extraction from Turkish texts include the following: • The development of temporal expression extraction and normalization systems is an important open issue for Turkish.  ...

Satya Almasian, Dennis Aumiller, Michael Gertz
2022 European Conference on Information Retrieval  
Non-English languages are notorious for their lack of available resources, and temporal tagging is no exception.  ...  With this, we provide preliminary empirical evidence that indicates the suitability of transfer approaches to other low-resourced languages: A small number of gold data coupled with an existing data set  ...  A Transfer Pipeline for Temporal Tagging Temporal tagging is the task of identication of temporal expression, classication of the type and sometimes normalization of temporal values.  ...
