Example-based machine translation using efficient sentence retrieval based on edit-distance
Takao Doi, Hirofumi Yamamoto, Eiichiro Sumita
Pages: 377-399
DOI: 10.1145/1113308.1113310
An Example-Based Machine Translation (EBMT) system, whose translation example unit is a sentence, can produce an accurate and natural translation if translation examples similar enough to an input sentence are retrieved. Such a system, however,...

Estimating satisfactoriness of selectional restriction from corpus without a thesaurus
Yoichi Tomiura, Shosaku Tanaka, Toru Hitaka
Pages: 400-416
DOI: 10.1145/1113308.1113311
A selectional restriction specifies what combinations of words are semantically valid in a particular syntactic construction. This is one of the basic and important pieces of knowledge in natural language processing and has been used for syntactic...

Anaphora resolution by antecedent identification followed by anaphoricity determination
Ryu Iida, Kentaro Inui, Yuji Matsumoto
Pages: 417-434
DOI: 10.1145/1113308.1113312
We propose a machine learning-based approach to noun-phrase anaphora resolution that combines the advantages of previous learning-based models while overcoming their drawbacks. Our anaphora resolution process reverses the order of the steps in the...

Acquiring causal knowledge from text using the connective marker tame
Takashi Inui, Kentaro Inui, Yuji Matsumoto
Pages: 435-474
DOI: 10.1145/1113308.1113313
In this paper, we deal with automatic knowledge acquisition from text, specifically the acquisition of causal relations. A causal relation is the relation existing between two events such that one event causes (or enables) the other event,...

Topic-structure-based complementary information retrieval and its application
Qiang Ma, Katsumi Tanaka
Pages: 475-503
DOI: 10.1145/1113308.1113314
A great deal of technology has been developed to help people access the information they require. With advances in the availability of information, information-seeking activities are becoming more sophisticated. This means that information technology...
