A logic-based environment for developing natural language processing applications

Gérard Milhaud, Élisabeth Godbert (1998)

Mathématiques et Sciences Humaines

We present a system providing a set of tools for developing natural language processing (NLP) applications such as natural language interfaces, communication aid systems, etc. This system is based on two principles: modularity of knowledge representation to ensure the portability of the system, and guided sentence composition to ensure transparency, i.e. to ensure that the produced sentences are well-formed at the lexical, syntactic, semantic and conceptual levels. We first describe the formalisms...

Approches des grammaires catégorielles

Frédérique Segond (1990)

Mathématiques et Sciences Humaines

Étant donné l'importance que prennent les grammaires catégorielles dans le domaine de la linguistique computationnelle, il nous a semblé intéressant de dresser un panorama sur cette question. Nous espérons fournir, aux chercheurs intéressés, un matériau de base susceptible de les aider à approfondir par eux-mêmes le sujet.

Communication with www in Czech

Lukáš Svoboda, Luboš Popelínský (2004)


This paper describes UIO, a multi–domain question–answering system for the Czech language that looks for answers on the web. UIO exploits two fields, namely natural language interface to databases and question answering. In its current version, UIO can be used for asking questions about train and coach timetables, cinema and theatre performances, about currency exchange rates, name–days and on the Diderot Encyclopaedia. Much effort have been made into making addition of a new domain very easy. No...

Inference in conditional probability logic

Niki Pfeifer, Gernot D. Kleiter (2006)


An important field of probability logic is the investigation of inference rules that propagate point probabilities or, more generally, interval probabilities from premises to conclusions. Conditional probability logic (CPL) interprets the common sense expressions of the form “if ..., then ...” by conditional probabilities and not by the probability of the material implication. An inference rule is probabilistically informative if the coherent probability interval of its conclusion is not necessarily...

Learning discrete categorial grammars from structures

Jérôme Besombes, Jean-Yves Marion (2008)

RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications

We define the class of discrete classical categorial grammars, similar in the spirit to the notion of reversible class of languages introduced by Angluin and Sakakibara. We show that the class of discrete classical categorial grammars is identifiable from positive structured examples. For this, we provide an original algorithm, which runs in quadratic time in the size of the examples. This work extends the previous results of Kanazawa. Indeed, in our work, several types can be associated to a word...

Strong completeness of the Lambek Calculus with respect to Relational Semantics

Szabolcs Mikulás (1993)

Banach Center Publications

In [vB88], Johan van Benthem introduces Relational Semantics (RelSem for short), and states Soundness Theorem for Lambek Calculus (LC) w.r.t. RelSem. After doing this, he writes: "it would be very interesting to have the converse too", i.e., to have Completeness Theorem. The same question is in [vB91, p. 235]. In the following, we state Strong Completeness Theorems for different versions of LC.

Structures grammaticales dans le français mathématique : I

Aarne Ranta (1997)

Mathématiques et Sciences Humaines

Un système de règles grammaticales est présenté pour analyser un fragment du français permettant l'expression de théorèmes et de preuves mathématiques. Pour cet objectif, on développe une version de la grammaire de Montague, avec des catégories syntaxiques relatives au contexte et aux domaines d'individus. Ce système peut être interprété dans la théorie constructive des types de Martin-Löf. Il est appliqué, d'abord, au français sans symboles mathématiques, avec une attention spéciale aux restrictions...
