A query tool for syntactically annotated corpora

Laura Kallmeyer
2000 Proceedings of the 2000 Joint SIGDAT conference on Empirical methods in natural language processing and very large corpora held in conjunction with the 38th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics -  
The tool uses a query language that allows to search for tokens, syntactic categories, grammatical functions and binary relations of (immediate) dominance and linear precedence between nodes.  ...  An incoming query is then translated into a corresponding SQL query that is evaluated on the database.  ...  Acknowledgments For fruitful discussions I would like to thank Oliver Plaehn and Ilona Steiner. Furthermore, I am grateful to three anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments.  ...

Syntactic Tree Queries in Prolog

Gerlof Bouma
2010 Linguistic Annotation Workshop  
We present a case study based on the German TüBa-D/Z Treebank to show that flexible and efficient corpus querying can be started with a minimal amount of effort.  ...  In this paper, we argue for and demonstrate the use of Prolog as a tool to query annotated corpora.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was carried out in the context of the SFB 632 Information Structure, subproject D4: Methoden zur interaktiven linguistischen Korpusanalyse von Informationsstruktur.  ...

Semanticizing Syntactic Patterns in NLP Processing Using SPARQL-DL Queries

Nicola Vitucci, Mario Arrigoni Neri, Roberto Tedesco, Giuseppina Gini
2012 W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)  
We use SPARQL-DL queries to check the presence of syntactic patterns within a sentence and identify their role as frame elements.  ...  In our work we attempt to use SPARQL-DL as an interface between syntactic information given by the Stanford statistical parser (namely part-of-speech tagged text and typed dependency representation) and  ...  As future extensions we plan to add a semantic expansion/disambiguation module, in order both to cope with synonyms which are not explicitly present in the FrameNet database and to deal with semantically  ...

Efficient Indexing and Querying over Syntactically Annotated Trees [article]

Pirooz Chubak, Davood Rafiei
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We also propose a novel root-split coding scheme that stores subtree structural information only partially, thus reducing index size and improving querying performance.  ...  They not only allow for querying roles and relationships within sentences, but also improve search effectiveness compared to flat keyword queries.  ...  This research was supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the BIN network.  ...

Understanding Natural Language Through Parallel Processing of Syntactic and Semantic Knowledge: An Application to Data Base Query

R. Comino, Roberto Gemello, Giovanni Guida, Claudio Rullent, L. Sisto, Marco Somalvico
1983 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
The core of the system is constituted by the analyzer that includes parallel processing of syntactic and semantic knowledge.  ...  It is argued that this feature (together with the new macro and micro-analysis technique which is only shortly mentioned in this paper) allowed the system to reach a good linguistic coverage, still ensuring  ...  The following parameters have been estimated, cardinality of the syntactic search space expanded in both cases I and II, and analysis time for syntactic processing alone in case I and parallel syntactic  ...

Resolving query translation ambiguity using a decaying co-occurrence model and syntactic dependence relations

Jianfeng Gao, Ming Zhou, Jian-Yun Nie, Hongzhao He, Weijun Chen
2002 Proceedings of the 25th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '02  
Bilingual dictionaries have been commonly used for query translation in cross-language information retrieval (CLIR). However, we are faced with the problem of translation selection.  ...  Second, we incorporate a triple translation model, in which syntactic dependence relations (represented as triples) are integrated.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors would like to thank Ashley Chang, and Chang-Ning Huang for their suggestions and comments on a preliminary draft of this paper.  ...

Semantic processing in information retrieval

T C Rindflesch, A R Aronson
1993 Proceedings. Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care  
In this paper we briefly review the use of phrases in information retrieval and then suggest extensions to this paradigm using semantic information.  ...  Intuition suggests that one way to enhance the information retrieval process would be the use of phrases to characterize the contents of text.  ...  McCray, Amir Razi, and Suresh Srinivasan for their contributions to this project.  ...
