    Element discourse unit (EDU) recognition is the primary task of discourse analysis. Chinese punctuation is viewed as a delimiter of elementary discourse units in Chinese. In this paper, we consider Chinese comma to be the boundary of the discourse units and also to anchor discourse relations between units separated by comma. We divide it into seven major types based on syntactic patterns and propo... View full abstract»

    There are two major views on the generation of sentential topics in Chinese, of which some are the ones moved from a syntactic position. Disagreement occurs as regards the so-called dangling topics. One view contends that dangling topics are the moved ones, thematically related to a position inside the comment, the other holds that they are base-generated and licensed by the non-empty set resultin...

    Performing the function of encapsulating the whole discourse, discourse topic is usually considered as the center of the discourse. However, the representation form of discourse topic has not been agreed upon due to the elusive nature of the notion per se. Some people view discourse topic as an entity; others regard it as a question; still others as a proposition or even as an unnecessary form. Th... View full abstract»

    Dimensionality reduction is the process of deriving an approximate representation of a dataset, that can reflect most of the correlations underlying within the dataset. In the context of text processing, dimensionality reduction is used for transforming any text to a precise representation that efficiently identifies the main insights of the original text. LSA(Latent Semantic Analysis) is a techni... View full abstract»

    As Chinese expression diversity, there are some shortcomings in traditional algorithms of Chinese entity relationship extraction. For example, workload of labeling by hand on training corpus is too large, the generated relationship schemas usually have poor versatility, and it is difficult to select or integrate high quality domain ontology for extraction task. Moreover, these algorithms don't con... View full abstract»

    To get better performance, Some researchers have proposed relative work to exploit the position and proximity information of query terms in language model. However these models need large quantity of training data and its computation complexity is comparatively high. This paper presents an information retrieval model combining sentence level retrieval and use sentence as a unit to compute the rele... View full abstract»

    Studies on Chinese sentences with shi (ÊÇ) as predicate have been profoundly fruitful from the perspective of syntax, semantics and pragmatics. In a broader sense, however, a large number of sentences with shi functioning as other syntactic roles - adverb, conjunction, auxiliary and even interjection - are practically used, and stand as barriers to natural language processing (NLP) and machine tra...
