Spotting and Discovering Terms through Natural Language Processing
Christian Jacquemin

In this book Christian Jacquemin shows how the power of natural
language processing (NLP) can be used to advance text indexing and
information retrieval (IR). Jacquemin's novel tool is FASTR, a parser
that normalizes terms and recognizes term variants. Since there are
more meanings in a language than there are words, FASTR uses a
metagrammar composed of shallow linguistic transformations that
describe the morphological, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic
variations of words and terms. The acquired parsed terms can then be
applied for precise retrieval and assembly of information.

The use of a corpus-based unification grammar to define, recognize,
and combine term variants from their base forms allows for intelligent
information access to, or "linguistic data tuning" of, heterogeneous
texts. FASTR can be used to do automatic controlled indexing, to
carry out content-based Web searches through conceptually related
alternative query formulations, to abstract scientific and technical
extracts, and even to translate and collect terms from multilingual
material. Jacquemin provides a comprehensive account of the method and
implementation of this innovative retrieval technique for text
processing.

Christian Jacquemin is Professor at the University of Paris 11 and
Researcher in Computer Science at CNRS-LIMSI (Centre National de la
Recherche Scientifique, Laboratoire d'Informatique pour la M�canique
et les Sciences de l'Ing�nieur).
