Studying the effect and treatment of misspelled queries in Cross-Language Information Retrieval

Jesús Vilares, Miguel A. Alonso, Yerai Doval, Manuel Vilares
2016 Information Processing & Management  
In contrast with their monolingual counterparts, little attention has been paid to the effects that misspelled queries have on the performance of Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) systems.  ...  The second approach to be studied is the use of character n-grams both as index terms and translation units, seeking to take advantage of their inherent robustness and language-independence.  ...  Government of Galicia, through the Galician Network for Language Processing and Information Retrieval-RedPLIR (grant CN2014/034).  ...

Research on Query Disambiguation and Expansion for Cross-Language Information Retrieval

Fatiha Sadat
2010 Communications of the IBIMA  
Query disambiguation is considered as one of the most important methods in improving the effectiveness of information retrieval.  ...  By combining query expansion with dictionary-based translation and statistics-based disambiguation, in order to overcome query terms ambiguity, information retrieval should become much more efficient.  ...  Although, the proposed information retrieval system is general across languages in information retrieval, we conducted experiments and evaluations concerning French-English information retrieval.  ...

The effect of visual query languages on the improvement of information retrieval skills

Jozef Hvorecký, Martin Drlík, Michal Munk
2010 Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences  
Using an experiment, two forms of query creation (SQL and QBE) have been compared from three points of view: the time period necessary for forming queries, their correctness, and their authors' comfort  ...  In the conclusion, the authors indicate how their experimental results can be exploited for the users' training improvement.  ...  Thus, the query languages (SQL and QBE-like language) were the independent variables.  ...
