Abstract:

Semantic fields are lexically coherent - the words they contain co-occur in
texts. In this book the authors introduce and define semantic domains, a
computational model for lexical semantics inspired by the theory of
semantic fields. Semantic domains allow us to exploit domain features for
texts, terms and concepts, and they can significantly boost the performance
of natural-language processing systems. Semantic domains can be derived
from existing lexical resources or can be acquired from corpora in an
unsupervised manner. They also have the property of interlinguality, and
they can be used to relate terms in different languages in multilingual
application scenarios. The authors give a comprehensive explanation of the
computational model, with detailed chapters on semantic domains, domain
models, and applications of the technique in text categorization, word
sense disambiguation, and cross-language text categorization. This book is
suitable for researchers and graduate students in computational linguistics.
