Automatic generation and evaluation of sentence graphs out of word graphs

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


    This paper reports on the development of a system that automaticallyconstructs representations of the meaning of sentences usingrules of grammar and a dictionary of word meanings. The meaningsof words and sentences are expressed using an extension of knowledgegraphs, a semantic network formalism. Furthermore the system containsan algorithm that calculates an evaluation measure for alternative sentencegraphs of one sentence, making it possible to disambiguate themeaning of sentences on semantical grounds.
