    1. System for correcting improper determiners

      In a grammar checking system which includes first tagging a sentence as to parts of speech, an improper determiner correction module detects improper referents of a noun phrase and suggests insertion of a determiner should one be necessary or the deletion of an improper determiner. To detect improper use of a determiner, parts of speech tags are utilized to characterize a sentence, thus to identify noun phrases by maximally matching a pattern that defines which sequences of parts of speech tags constitute valid noun phrases. This is accomplished by identifying the start of the noun phrase and its end to ...

    2. Method and apparatus for efficient morphological text analysis using a high-level language for compact specification of inflectional paradigms

      A language syntax defines statement forms for statements that describe the inflectional morphology of the natural language. A set of language statements that follow a language syntax to describe the inflectional morphology of the natural language is accepted as input into to a computer. Rule statements define a set of morpho-syntactic features corresponding to grammatical distinctions within the parts of speech categories in the natural language and define a set of inflectional morphological paradigms. The inflectional morphological paradigms include form rule statements to describe the construction of word forms and associate with each construction pre-selected morpho-syntactic features.

    3. Recognition training system

      The Recognition Training System (RTS) incorporates a new and innovative process which facilitates the training of a person to rapidly and accurately distinguish between members of a set of entities, through the trainee interacting with RTS. The methodology of RTS involves the presentation of one or more attributes associated with an entity, while the trainee attempts to identify by name the entity, or the trainee may request that specific entities and associated attributes be shown for reference purposes. RTS supports an interactive training process which is almost completely self directed and affords a trainee an opportunity to make distinctions between ...

    5. Natural language analyzing apparatus and method, and construction of a knowledge base for natural language analysis

      A system for resolving structural ambiguities in syntactic analysis of natural language, which ambiguities are caused by prepositional phrase attachment, relative clause attachment, and other modifier-modifiee relationships in sentences. The system uses instances of dependency (modification relationship) structures extracted from a terminology dictionary as a knowledge base. Structural ambiguity is represented by indicating that a word in a sentence has several words as candidate modifiees. The system resolves such ambiguity by 1) first searching the knowledge base, which contains dependency information in the form of tree structures, for dependencies between the word and each of its possible modifiees, 2) then ...

    8. Method and apparatus for summarizing documents according to theme

      A summary is automatically formed by selecting regions of a document. Each selected region includes at least two members of a seed list. The seed list is formed from a predetermined number of the most frequently occurring complex expressions in the document that are not on a stop list. If the summary is too long, the region-selection process is performed on the summary to produce a shorter summary. This region-selection process is repeated until a summary is produced having a desired length. Each time the region selection process is repeated, the seed list members are added to the stop list ...

    11. Constrained natural language interface for a computer system

      A user/computer interface is described that employ a constrained natural language-form input. The computer employs a feedback method to reinforce a user's confidence and knowledge that the computer comprehends a query or instruction. The user interface initially parses a user's natural language-form input into a case frame. The case frame is then filtered into a goal-expression that comprises a verb and remaining syntactical portions of the input query/instruction. The system then paraphrases the goal-expression into constrained natural language-form and communicates the paraphrase to the user for confirmation that the computer system has correctly interpreted the user ...

    12. System and method for converting sentence elements unrecognizable by a computer system into base language elements recognizable by the computer system

      A system and method for converting inoperative sentence elements into operative elements in which a set of grammar rules for substituting sentence elements with different elements is established. A sequential comparison between each grammar rule and the sentence elements is then accomplished to find a match between a grammar rule and one or more contiguous sentence elements. A substitution of the matched element for the different elements from the grammar rule is then accomplished. Such sequential comparison and substitution is continued for the entire series of sentence elements to fully convert the sentence to operative elements.
