    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (194 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Emotion estimation from sentences is helpful in semantic analysis and human-computer interaction. People sometimes express their emotions directly and sometimes describe experiences that produce various emotions. Emotion estimation requires both verbal expressions. We believe Japanese onomatopoeias could serve as a landmark of emotions. In this study, multiple raters judged emotions found in 324 o... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (329 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This study investigates the possible errors related to Chinese tone 4 of German learners. Production of short Chinese sentences are produced by 13 German students who have learned Chinese for one year. Evaluation of these productions are conducted by 10 Chinese native speakers. One monosyllabic word and eight disyllabic words with tone 4 segmented from the sentences are compared with those of 5 Ch... View full abstract»

    It is a new way to study Chinese Information Processing (CIP) from semantic of ambiguity structure. This paper, aiming at computer identification of ambiguity structure, constructs the strategy and procedure diagram by the discussion of the form characteristics of A Shuo Shenmeye B, which can express two different meaning: the original meaning and the contracted meaning. This study is based on thr... View full abstract»

  • Multi-view Learning for Semi-supervised Sentiment Classification

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):13 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (219 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Standard supervised approach to sentiment classification requires a large amount of manually labeled data which is costly and time-consuming to obtain. To tackle this problem, we propose a novel semi-supervised learning method based on multi-view learning. The main idea of our approach is generate multiple views by exploiting both feature partition and language translation strategies and then stan... View full abstract»

    Opinions are subjective expressions that describe people's viewpoints, perspectives or feelings about entities, events and theirs properties. Detecting subjective expressions is the task of identifying whether a given text is subjective (i.e. an opinion)or objective (i.e. a reports fact). This task is considered as the first problem and it is very important for opinion mining and sentiment analysi... View full abstract»

  • From Raw Text to Morphological Rules for Iban Morphological Analyser

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (187 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    To extend a complete workflow of automatic acquisition of morphological rules for morphological analyser, we propose a semi-automatic workflow for under-resourced language, which is Iban language. The workflow focuses in determining the rules to be used for building Iban morphological analyser without prior knowledge of language-specific morphological rules. This work introduces three main steps i... View full abstract»

  • A Hierarchical Graph Method Using in A* Algorithm for Vietnamese Parsing Technique

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):25 - 28
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (452 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents our research about hierarchical graph method (HGM) in the A* searching algorithm for parsing technique. HGM is used in new-node generation step of A* parsing algorithm. Unlike classical virtual node method, HGM decreases redundancy nodes in the parsing process and reduces the timing-cost for finding the best parse. View full abstract»

  • Study on the Influencing Factors of Chinese Word Segmentation

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (206 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Out-of-vocabulary words (OOV) and ambiguity are two important issues for Chinese word segmentation (CWS). In previous studies, the measurement of OOV has been clearly stated, while the measurement of ambiguity requires further clarification. This paper puts forward the concept and calculation method of latent ambiguity (LA), analyzes the relation and the mutual influence between OOV, LA and CWS. E... View full abstract»

    In this paper we describe a phonetic classification of Japanese puns (dajare). Basing on real life examples gathered from available sources (books, Internet), we divided Japanese puns into 12 groups with numerous subgroups, according to phonetic changes that occur within them. This classification was prepared for the NLP purpose, i.e. to be used in humor processing. Its usefulness was shown in a r... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we explore the effect of self-training and co-training on Hindi dependency parsing using partial parses. We use Partial parser and apply self-training using a large unannotated corpus. For co-training, we use Malt and MST parser along with Partial Parser. We explore different criteria for choosing partial parses to be used for bootstrapping. Through these experiments, we compare the... View full abstract»

  • Word Sense Induction Using Correlated Topic Model

    Word sense induction (WSI) is the problem of automatic identification of word senses given the corpus. This paper presents a method for solving WSI problem based on the context clustering approach. The idea behind this approach is that similar contexts indicate similar meanings. Specifically, we have successfully applied Correlated Topic Model (CTM) to partition contexts of a word into clusters, e... View full abstract»

  • Analyzing and Classifying the Yami Emotion Phrases Using Ontological Structure and Computation

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):45 - 48
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (242 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper describes an approach for using an ontological structure to analyze Yami ika-emotion phrases. The study of the emotion phrases of the Austronesian language is still in a very early stage. In this study, we designed an approach of using an ontology to simulate the previous study on emotion and cognition of another Philippine language. Based on the implementation and experimental results,... View full abstract»

  • Anaphora Resolution in Bangla Using Global Discourse Knowledge

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (252 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a pronominal anaphora resolution (PAR) approach that makes use of the global discourse knowledge along with other traditional features. So far the features used in finding the referent of an anaphoric pronoun are computed locally. Normally the sentence containing the anaphor and a few sentences immediately before form the local context. In this process, the knowledge base gets ... View full abstract»

  • Improve Chinese Semantic Dependency Parsing via Syntactic Dependency Parsing

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (206 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We address the problem of Chinese semantic dependency parsing. Dependency parsing is traditionally oriented to syntax analysis, which we denote by syntactic dependency parsing to distinguish it from semantic dependency parsing. In this paper, firstly we compare Chinese semantic dependency parsing and syntactic dependency parsing systematically, showing that syntactic dependency parsing can potenti... View full abstract»
