Inducing Constraint-based Grammars using a Domain Ontology

Muresan, Smaranda

This thesis presents a framework for domain specific text- to-knowledge acquisition, with focus on medical domain. The main challenge of this domain is the abundance of linguistic phenomena that require both syntactic and semantic information in order to “understand” the meaning of the text, and thus to acquire knowledge. Examples include prepositional phrases, coordinations, noun-noun compounds and nominalizations, phenomena which are not well covered by existing syntactic or semantic parsers.
