Inducing morphemes using light knowledge
Tepper M., Xia F. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 9(1): 1-38, 2010. Type: Article
The morphological analysis of texts has resulted in improvements in speech recognition error rates and in information retrieval, as well as other areas where computational linguistics is used. The creation of rule-based morphological analyzers...

Conjugation-based compression for Hebrew texts
Wiseman Y., Gefner I. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 6(1): 4-es, 2007. Type: Article
A compression technique designed for the Hebrew language is presented in this paper. The well-known Burrows-Wheeler algorithm is used, but a preprocessing step makes use of the fact that Hebrew words are derived from roots of two, three, or four...

Effect of relationships between words on Japanese information retrieval
Matsumura A., Takasu A., Adachi J. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 5(3): 264-289, 2006. Type: Article
The most common approach to the implementation of information retrieval (IR) systems is the term frequency-inverse document frequency (tf-idf) model. In this model, in a given document, a word with high document frequency and low collection...

On a combination of probabilistic and Boolean IR models for WWW document retrieval
Yoshioka M., Haraguchi M. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 4(3): 340-356, 2005. Type: Article
The authors presume that readers will have substantial knowledge of the details of query reformulation in the context of information retrieval (IR), including background material, acronyms, and a significant familiarity with some of the...

Japanese question-answering system using A* search and its improvement
Mori T. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 4(3): 280-304, 2005. Type: Article
Typical question-answering systems accept questions of the types who, when, where, what, and how. The response is generated as the result of a search applied to a document base. Because this document collection may include documents from the Web, ...

Rich results from poor resources: NTCIR-4 monolingual and cross-lingual retrieval of Korean texts using Chinese and English
Kwok K., Choi S., Dinstl N. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 4(2): 136-162, 2005. Type: Article
Cross-lingual information retrieval (CLIR) is considered very important, since it results in more flexible information retrieval systems. This work presents an interesting approach for information retrieval in collections of Korean documents....

Towards effective strategies for monolingual and bilingual information retrieval: lessons learned from NTCIR-4
Qu Y., Hull D., Grefenstette G., Evans D., Ishikawa M., Nara S., Ueda T., Noda D., Arita K., Funakoshi Y., Matsuda H. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 4(2): 78-110, 2005. Type: Article
This substantial paper will be very useful for researchers working in automated information retrieval (IR), but not for a general audience. It describes, in great detail, techniques for both monolingual IR in English and Japanese, and...

Flexible pseudo-relevance feedback via selective sampling
Sakai T., Manabe T., Koyama M. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 4(2): 111-135, 2005. Type: Article
A modification to the mechanism suggested in previous work to improve information retrieval performance via relevance feedback is presented in this paper. In this case, the authors consider pseudo-relevance feedback (PRF), which takes the top...

Analysis and modeling of F0 contours for Cantonese text-to-speech
Li Y., Lee T., Qian Y. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 3(3): 169-180, 2004. Type: Article
The fundamental frequency (F0) of human speech is the critical factor in creating synthetic speech with natural prosody, the temporal and rhythmic properties of human utterance that make speech sound natural rather than robotic. Mechanical...

A hybrid language model based on a combination of
-grams and stochastic context-free grammars
Linares D., Benedí J., Sánchez J. ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing 3(2): 113-127, 2004. Type: Article
This paper describes a hybrid language model, consisting of a word-based
-gram used to capture the local relationships between words, together with a category-based stochastic context-free grammar (SCFG) to represent the...
