  1. 1. A Local Grammar of Cause and Effect A Corpus-driven Study

    University dissertation from University of Birmingham

    Author : Christopher Allen; [2005]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Local grammar; Biomedical English; Corpus-driven; Humaniora; Humanities;

    Abstract : This thesis puts forward a specialized, functional grammar of cause and effect withinthe sub-genre of biomedical research articles. Building on research into the localgrammars of dictionary definitions and evaluation, the thesis describes the applicationof a corpus-driven methodology to description of the principal lexical grammaticalpatterns which underpin causation in scientific writing.

  2. 2. Structure-driven derivation of inter-lingual functor-argument trees for multi-lingual generation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Univ

    Author : Stefan Svenberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : We show how an inter-lingual representation o messages can be exploited for natural language generation of technical documentation into Swedish and English in a system called Genie. Genie has a conceptual knowledge base of the facts considered as true in the domain. A user queries the knowledge base for the facts she wants the document to include. READ MORE

  3. 3. Language Modelling and Error Handling in Spoken Dialogue Systems

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Genevieve Gorrell; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Language Modelling; Spoken Dialogue Systems; Error Handling; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Language modelling for speech recognition is an area of research currently divided between two main approaches: stochastic and grammar-based approaches are each being differently preferred for their respective strengths and weaknesses. At the same time, dialogue systems researchers are becoming aware of the potential value of handling recognition failures better to improve the user experience. READ MORE
