Detecting multiword phrases in mathematical text corpora [article]

Winfried Gödert
2012 arXiv   pre-print
It makes use of a software tool named Lingo which allows to identify words by means of previously defined dictionaries for specific word classes as adjectives, personal names or nouns.  ...  We present an approach for detecting multiword phrases in mathematical text corpora. The method used is based on characteristic features of mathematical terminology.  ...  We can obviously conclude that it might be very helpful for identification purposes to distinguish between words as personal names and words as labels for mathematical concepts.  ...
