Ill-Formed Text and Conceptual Processing

Lebowitz, Michael

In this paper, we discuss the problem of ill-formed (or incorrectly processed) text in the context of conceptual analysis text processing systems. We show that syntactically ill-formed text is not a major problem for such systems. Conceptually ill-formed text and conceptually ill-formed representations of text do cause interesting problems. We define conceptual ill-formedness and then present ideas for how it can handled in the context of two text processing systems, IPP and RESEARCHER.
