Using Grammatical Relations to Automate Thesaurus Construction

Dongqiang Yang, David M. W. Powers
2010 Journal of research and practice in information technology  
In this paper we introduce a novel method of automating thesauri using syntactically constrained distributional similarity.  ...  With respect to syntactically conditioned co-occurrences, most popular approaches to automatic thesaurus construction simply ignore the salience of grammatical relations and effectively merge them into  ...  Given the top n similar words S for a target T in an automatic thesaurus Pn is defined as |S|/n, where |S| refers to the number of S that can be retrieved in the top n similar words of T in WordNet or  ...

A Taxonomy and Survey of Semantic Approaches for Query Expansion

Muhammad Ahsan Raza, M. Rahmah, A. Noraziah, Maruf Pasha, Urooj Pasha
2019 IEEE Access  
These methods do not consider search query semantics, thereby resulting in ineffective retrieval of information.  ...  In addition, we evaluate various semantic QE approaches in terms of knowledge structure utilization, corpus collection, baseline model adaptation, and retrieval performance.  ...  In performing experiments using the ProQuest thesaurus, [22] evaluated the usefulness of various thesaurus relations (such as synonym, descendent and ancestor) in QE.  ...
