Anaphora Processing: Linguistic, Cognitive and Computational - download pdf or read online

By António Branco, Tony McEnery, Ruslan Mitkov

Anaphora processing is a primary subject within the learn of typical language and has lengthy been the item of study in quite a lot of disciplines. the right kind interpretation of anaphora has additionally turn into more and more vital for real-world usual language processing purposes, together with computing device translation, computerized abstracting, info extraction and query answering.
This quantity presents a distinct assessment of the processing of anaphora from a multi- and inter-disciplinary attitude. will probably be of curiosity and useful use to readers from fields as different as theoretical linguistics, corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, desktop technological know-how, usual language processing, man made intelligence, human language know-how, psycholinguistics, cognitive technological know-how and translation studies.
The readership comprises yet isn't constrained to school academics, researchers, postgraduate and senior undergraduate students.

Orwell’s “1984”. HOW TO DEAL WITH WICKED ANAPHORA? 33 There are no other means to solve this reference than enforcing the labelling of Bucharest, in its corresponding DE, the very moment when it is processed, with, for instance, a city1 value of a sem attribute. If this labelling information is available, fetched by a name-entity recogniser, then the framework processes the reference the same way it does with common nouns with different lemmas. 1 Plural pronouns identifying split antecedents (17) John waited for Maria.

Noun to split antecedents 4 pl. pron. 21 The total number of relations was computed by adding the number of coreferential relations (number of REs minus number of DEs) with the number of functional relations. The investigated phenomena amounted to 2/3 of the total number of anaphoric relations in the corpus (approx. 67%). The rest are genuine coreference relations. Nested REs raised no problem, because the simple identification of this surface pattern yields a belongs-to relation or a variation of it.

19 HOW TO DEAL WITH WICKED ANAPHORA? , 1996), also called indirect anaphora or associative anaphora (Mitkov, 2002), which express semantic relations between different discourse entities, including type/token, ispart-of/has-as-part, is-element-of/has-as-element, etc. As sketched in Figure 1, chains of coreferential REs are represented as corresponding to a unique DE on the semantic layer, whereas functional references are represented as relational text layer REa semantic layer DEa REb text layer REa semantic layer DEa a.
