                       such gesture vocabularies in terms of their
                       learnability and naturalness. This is done by example
                       of rivaling gesture vocabularies of the museum
                       information system WikiNect. In this way, we do not
                       only provide a procedure for evaluating gesture
                       vocabularies, but additionally contribute to design

                       hypertexts by example of the museum information system
                       WikiNect. To this end, a first implementation of
                       gestural writing based on image schemata is provided
                       (Lakoff in Women, fire, and dangerous things: what
                       categories reveal about the mind. University of Chicago
                       Press, Chicago, 1987). Gestural writing is defined as a
                       sort of coding in which propositions are only expressed
                       by means of gestures. In this respect, it is shown that
                       image schemata allow for bridging between natural
                       language predicates and gestural manifestations.
                       Further, it is demonstrated that gestural writing
                       primarily focuses on the perceptual level of image
                       descriptions (Hollink et al. in Int J Hum Comput Stud
                       61(5):601–626, 2004). By exploring the metaphorical
                       potential of image schemata, it is finally illustrated
                       how to extend the expressiveness of gestural writing in
                       order to reach the conceptual level of image
                       descriptions. In this context, the paper paves the way
                       for implementing museum information systems like
                       WikiNect as systems of kinetic hypertext authoring

                       gestures – that leads to speech-and-gesture alignment

                       system that allows museum visitors to give on-site
                       feedback about exhibitions. To this end, WikiNect
                       integrates three approaches to Human-Computer
                       Interaction (HCI): games with a purpose, wiki-based
                       collaborative writing and kinetic text-technologies.
                       Our aim is to develop kinetic technologies as a new
                       paradigm of HCI. They dispense with classical
                       interfaces (e.g., keyboards) in that they build on
                       non-contact modes of communication like gestures or
                       facial expressions as input displays. In this paper, we
                       introduce the notion of gestural writing as a kinetic
                       text-technology that underlies WikiNect to enable
                       museum visitors to communicate their feedback. The
                       basic idea is to explore sequences of gestures that
                       share the semantic expressivity of verbally manifested
                       speech acts. Our task is to identify such gestures that
                       are learnable on-site in the usage scenario of
                       WikiNect. This is done by referring to so-called
                       transient gestures as part of multimodal ensembles,
                       which are candidate gestures of the desired
                       functionality. },

                       accompany speech, are not a big issue in current
                       theories of grammar. If we deal with gestures, fixing
                       their function is one big problem, the other one is how
                       to integrate the representations originating from
                       different channels and, ultimately, how to determine
                       their composite meanings. The growing interest in
                       multi-modal settings, computer simulations,
                       human-machine interfaces and VR-applications increases
                       the need for theories of multi-modal structures and

                       different approaches dealing with this problem such as

                       quantified over are the time-stamps of the XML-based
                       annotation of the digital video data. It was found
                       that, on average, gesture strokes do not exceed, but
                       are freely distributed over the time span of their
                       linguistic affiliates. Further, the onset of the
                       affiliate was observed to occur earlier than gesture
                       initiation. Moreover, we found that gestures do obey
                       certain appropriateness conditions and contribute
                       semantic content ('gestures save words') as well.
                       Gestures also seem to play a functional role wrt

                       contribute to the bundle of features making up a
                       turn-taking signal. Some statistical results support a
                       partitioning of the domain, which is also reflected in
                       certain rating difficulties. However, our evaluation of
                       the applied annotation scheme generally resulted in

                       multidimensional model of syntactic dependency trees.
                       Our ultimate goal is to generate fingerprints of such
                       trees to predict the author of the underlying
                       sentences. The chapter makes a first attempt to create
                       such fingerprints for sentence categorization via the
                       detour of text categorization. We show that at text
                       level, aggregated dependency structures actually
                       provide information about authorship. At the same time,
                       we show that this does not hold for topic detection. We
                       evaluate our model using a quarter of a million
                       sentences collected in two corpora: the first is
                       sampled from literary texts, the second from Wikipedia
                       articles. As a second finding of our approach, we show
                       that quantitative models of dependency structure do not
                       yet allow for detecting syntactic alignment in written
                       communication. We conclude that this is mainly due to
                       effects of lexical alignment on syntactic alignment.},

                       for ubiquitous modeling of historical processes.
                       Starting from the art project \textit{Stolpersteine} of
                       Gunter Demnig, it allows for virtually connecting these
                       stumbling blocks with information about the biographies
                       of victims of Nazism. According to the practice of
                       \textit{public history}, the aim of Stolperwege is to
                       deepen public knowledge of the Holocaust in the context
                       of our everyday environment. Stolperwege uses an
                       information model that allows for modeling social
                       networks of agents starting from information about
                       portions of their life. The paper exemplifies how
                       Stolperwege is informationally enriched by means of
                       historical maps and 3D animations of (historical)

                       for a range of disciplines. At the same time, it lists
                       a number of recent interpretations that can inform and
                       influence present and future genre research. Last but

      abstract       = {In English: The paper deals with characteristics of
                       the structural, thematic and participatory dynamics of
                       collaboratively generated lexical networks. This is
                       done by example of Wiktionary. Starting from a
                       network-theoretical model in terms of so-called
                       multi-layer networks, we describe Wiktionary as a
                       scale-free lexicon. Systems of this sort are
                       characterized by the fact that their content-related
                       dynamics is determined by the underlying dynamics of
                       collaborating authors. This happens in a way that
                       social structure imprints on content structure.
                       According to this conception, the unequal distribution

                       for analyzing and comparing multilingual data as well
                       as its application to a large body of standardized
                       assessment data from higher education. The approach
                       employs both an automatic and a manual annotation of
                       the data on several linguistic layers (including parts
                       of speech, text structure and content). Quantitative
                       features of the textual data are explored that are
                       related to both the students’ (domain-specific
                       knowledge) test results and their level of academic
                       experience. The respective analysis involves statistics
                       of distance correlation, text categorization with
                       respect to text types (questions and distractors) as
                       well as languages (English and German), and network
                       analysis as a means to assess dependencies between
                       features. The results indicate a correlation between
                       correct test results of students and linguistic
                       features of the verbal presentations of tests
                       indicating a language influence on higher education
                       test performance. It is also found that this influence
                       relates to special language. Thus, this integrative
                       modeling approach contributes a test basis for a
                       large-scale analysis of learning data and points to a
                       number of subsequent more detailed research.},

                       exact and bag-of-words based repetitions in
                       digitisations of verse bound text. Verse itself is a
                       repetition in linguistic patterning, text itself is a
                       visualisation of speech. In this sense, line breaks are
                       a visualisation technique based on the repetition of
                       linguistic patterning, which the ReAF maintains. Verse
                       bound text existed prior to the invention of script;
                       the first written literary produce of cultures is
                       usually in verse. In their seminal work, Lord (1960)
                       and Parry (1971) attempted to explain the peculiarities
                       of one such text, the Odyssey, by investigating a
                       living oral tradition in Yugoslavia. They invented the
                       Oral Formulaic Theory and showed how bardic composition
                       in performance works. No single author exists but
                       formula and story lines are passed on from generation
                       to generation; the actual performance is always a
                       unique text and no two performances of the same epic
                       are the same. Their conclusion is that one original
                       text of the Odyssey does not exist, has never existed
                       and cannot even exist. Lord and Parry developed tests
                       for the orality of a given text, where they used
                       underlining of repeated passages or formula. To compile
                       this visualisation in the print age required a lot of
                       manual labour, so they largely limited themselves to
                       shorter passages such as the beginning of the Odyssey.
                       This limitation was criticised later on for instance by
                       Finnegan (1992) who misses a complete statistical
                       analyses. The ReAF is a holistic extension of that late
                       print age visualisation of repetition in verse bound
                       text. It uses HTML and JavaScript in order to generate
                       a very simple preprocessing, platform and browser
                       independent interactive visualisation, where the user
                       can navigate the text to verify or falsify his/her
                       assumptions on text genesis and text category.

                       claims that demonstratively used indexicals such as
                       this lack a referent-determining meaning but instead
                       rely on an accompanying demonstration act like a
                       pointing gesture. While this view allows to set up a
                       sound logic of demonstratives, the direct-referential
                       role assigned to pointing gestures has never been
                       scrutinized thoroughly in semantics or pragmatics. We
                       investigate the semantics and pragmatics of co-verbal
                       pointing from a foundational perspective combining
                       experiments, statistical investigation, computer
                       simulation and theoretical modeling techniques in a
                       novel manner. We evaluate various referential
                       hypotheses with a corpus of object identification games
                       set up in experiments in which body movement tracking
                       techniques have been extensively used to generate
                       precise pointing measurements. Statistical
                       investigation and computer simulations show that
                       especially distal areas in the pointing domain falsify
                       the semantic direct-referential hypotheses concerning
                       pointing gestures. As an alternative, we propose that
                       reference involving pointing rests on a default
                       inference which we specify using the empirical data.
                       These results raise numerous problems for classical
                       semantics–pragmatics interfaces: we argue for
                       pre-semantic pragmatics in order to account for
                       inferential reference in addition to classical
                       post-semantic Gricean pragmatics.},

                       texts requires the integrated development of tools for
                       automatically preprocessing these texts and for
                       building representation models of their genre- and
                       register-related dynamics. In this chapter we present
                       such a joint endeavor that ranges from resource
                       formation via preprocessing to network-based text
                       representation and classification. We start with
                       presenting the so-called TTLab Latin Tagger (TLT) that
                       preprocesses texts of classical and medieval Latin. Its
                       lexical resource in the form of the Frankfurt Latin
                       Lexicon (FLL) is also briefly introduced. As a first
                       test case for showing the expressiveness of these
                       resources, we perform a tripartite classification task
                       of authorship attribution, genre detection and a
                       combination thereof. To this end, we introduce a novel
                       text representation model that explores the core
                       structure (the so-called coreness) of lexical network
                       representations of texts. Our experiment shows the
                       expressiveness of this representation format and
                       mediately of our Latin preprocessor.},

                       the whole corpus, which contains variety induced
                       through copy errors and other processes and secondly,
                       producing a stemma. A stemma is a graph-based
                       visualization of the copy history with manuscripts as
                       nodes and copy events as edges. Its root, the so-called
                       archetype is the supposed original text or urtext from
                       which all subsequent copies are made. Our main
                       contribution is to present one of the first
                       computational approaches to automatic archetype
                       reconstruction and to introduce the first text-based

                       misreading) is an unnoticed substitution in silent

                       instruction manuals, this can lead to serious
                       consequences. We present a prototype of an automatic

                       available fullform lexica with a high number of named
                       entities are rather rare even in the case of this
                       lingua franca. Existing lexica are often limited in
                       several respects as explained in Section 2. What is
                       missing so far is a freely available substantial
                       machine-readable lexical resource of English that
                       contains a high number of word forms and a large

                       example of English. This lexicon, henceforth called

                       lexical resources and specify the statistical
                       procedures that we developed to extend and adjust it.
                       No manual modifications were done on the generated word
                       forms and lemmas. Our fully automatic procedure has the
                       advantage that whenever new versions of the source
                       lexica are available, a new version of ColLex.EN can be

                       process leading to mutual understanding. Finally, we

                       the philosophical grounding problem that involves the
                       use of modal language. Together, the three grounding
                       problems provide a grid that allows us to assess

                       transliterating names and unknown words during the
                       translation process. It becomes more problematic when
                       the source and the target language use different
                       scripts for writing. To handle this problem,
                       transliteration systems are becoming popular as
                       additional modules of the MT systems. In this abstract,
                       we are presenting an English to Bangla name
                       transliteration system that outperforms Google’s
                       transliteration system. The transliteration system is
                       the same as the phrase based statistical machine
                       translation system, but it works on character level
                       rather than on phrase level. The performance of a
                       statistical system is directly correlated with the size
                       of the training corpus. In this work, 2200 names are
                       extracted from the Wikipedia cross lingual links and
                       from Geonames . Also 3694 names are manually
                       transliterated and added to the data. 4716 names are
                       used for training, 590 for tuning and 588 names are
                       used for testing. If we consider only the candidate
                       transliterations, the system gives 64.28% accuracy. The
                       performance increases to more than 90%, if we consider
                       only the top 5 transliterations. To compare with the
                       Google’s English to Bangla transliteration system, a
                       list of 100 names are randomly selected from the test
                       data and translated by both systems. Our system gives
                       63% accuracy where the Google’s transliteration
                       system does not transliterate a single name correctly.
                       We have found significant improvement in terms of BLUE
                       and TER score when we add the transliteration module
                       with an English to Bangla machine transliteration

                       linguistics and computer science -- in terms of
                       Linguistic Networks. From the linguistic point of view
                       we examine whether languages can be distinguished when
                       looking at network topology of different linguistic
                       networks. We deal with up to 17 languages and ask how
                       far the methods of network theory reveal the
                       peculiarities of single languages. We present and apply
                       network models from different levels of linguistic
                       representation: syntactic, phonological and
                       morphological. The network models presented here allow
                       to integrate various linguistic features at once, which
                       enables a more abstract, holistic view at the
                       particular language. From the point of view of computer
                       science we elaborate the instrumentarium of network
                       theory applying it to a new field. We study the
                       expressiveness of different network features and their
                       ability to characterize language structure. We evaluate
                       the interplay of these features and their goodness in
                       the task of classifying languages genealogically. Among
                       others we compare network features related to: average
                       degree, average geodesic distance, clustering,
                       entropy-based indices, assortativity, centrality,
                       compactness etc. We also propose some new indices that
                       can serve as additional characteristics of networks.
                       The results obtained show that network models succeed
                       in classifying related languages, and allow to study
                       language structure in general. The mathematical
                       analysis of the particular network indices brings new
                       insights into the nature of these indices and their
                       potential when applied to different networks.},

                       and function of the phenomenon of repetition in written
                       text. The motivating hypothesis for this study is that
                       the more repetitive a text is, the easier it is to
                       memorize. Therefore, an automated measurement index can
                       provide feedback to writers and for those who design
                       texts that are often memorized including songs, holy
                       texts, theatrical plays, and advertising slogans. The
                       potential benefits of this kind of systematic feedback
                       are numerous, the main one being that content creators
                       would be able to employ a standard threshold of
                       memorizability. This study explores multiple ways of
                       implementing and calculating repetitiveness across
                       levels of analysis (such as paragraph-level or sub-word
                       level) genres (such as songs, holy texts, and other
                       genres) and languages, integrating these into the a
                       model for the automatic measurement of repetitiveness.

                       features are explored in order to illuminate how the

                       as morphology, and discuss a few noteworthy extensions.
                       Moreover, we specify combinatorial formulas for
                       monotone many-to-many alignments and decoding in G2P
                       which indicate that exhaustive enumeration is generally
                       possible, so that some limitations of our approach can
                       easily be overcome. Finally, we present a decoding
                       scheme, within the monotone many-to-many alignment
                       paradigm, that relates the decoding problem to

                       Zor oastrianism, which was the state religion of the
                       Iranian empire in Achaemenid, Arsacid and Sasanid
                       times, covering a time span of more than 1200 years.
                       [1] It is named after the ‘Avesta’, i.e., the
                       collection of holy scriptures that form the basis of
                       the religion which was allegedly founded by
                       Zarathushtra, also known as Zoroaster, by about the
                       beginning of the first millennium B.C. Together with
                       Vedic Sanskrit, Avestan represents one of the most
                       archaic witnesses of the Indo-Iranian branch of the
                       Indo-European languages, which makes it especially
                       interesting for historical-comparative linguistics.
                       This is why the texts of the Avesta were among the
                       first objects of electronic corpus building that were
                       undertaken in the framework of Indo-European studies,
                       leading to the establishment of the TITUS database
                       (‘Thesaurus indogermanischer Text- u nd
                       Sprachmaterialien’). [2] Today, the complete Avestan
                       corpus is available, together with elaborate search
                       functions [3] and an extended version of the subcorpus
                       of the so-called ‘Yasna’, which covers a great deal
                       of the attestation of variant readings. [4] Right from
                       the beginning of their computational work concerning
                       the Avesta, the compilers [5] had to cope with the fact
                       that the texts contained in it have been transmitted in
                       a special script written from right to left, which was
                       also used for printing them in the scholarly editions
                       used until today. [6] It goes without saying that there
                       was no way in the middle of the 1980s to encode the
                       Avestan scriptures exactly as they are found in the
                       manuscripts. Instead, we had to rely upon
                       transcriptional devices that were dictated by the
                       restrictions of character encoding as provided by the
                       computer systems used. As the problems we had to face
                       in this respect and the solutions we could apply are
                       typical for the development of computational work on
                       ancient languages, it seems worthwhile to sketch them

      abstract       = {We present a network model of dialog lexica, called
                       TiTAN (Two-layer Time-Aligned Network) series. TiTAN
                       series capture the formation and structure of dialog
                       lexica in terms of serialized graph representations.
                       The dynamic update of TiTAN series is driven by the
                       dialog-inherent timing of turn-taking. The model
                       provides a link between neural, connectionist
                       underpinnings of dialog lexica on the one hand and
                       observable symbolic behavior on the other. On the
                       neural side, priming and spreading activation are
                       modeled in terms of TiTAN networking. On the symbolic
                       side, TiTAN series account for cognitive alignment in
                       terms of the structural coupling of the linguistic
                       representations of dialog partners. This structural
                       stance allows us to apply TiTAN in machine learning of
                       data of dialogical alignment. In previous studies, it
                       has been shown that aligned dialogs can be
                       distinguished from non-aligned ones by means of TiTAN
                       -based modeling. Now, we simultaneously apply this
                       model to two types of dialog: task-oriented,
                       experimentally controlled dialogs on the one hand and
                       more spontaneous, direction giving dialogs on the
                       other. We ask whether it is possible to separate
                       aligned dialogs from non-aligned ones in a
                       type-crossing way. Starting from a recent experiment
                       (Mehler, Lücking, \& Menke, 2011a), we show that such
                       a type-crossing classification is indeed possible. This
                       hints at a structural fingerprint left by alignment in
                       networks of linguistic items that are routinely
                       co-activated during conversation.},

                       paradigm for simulation studies on language evolution
                       and the establishment of naming conventions. Recently,
                       NGs were used for reconstructing the creation of
                       linguistic categories, most notably for color terms. We
                       recap the functional principle of NGs and the latter
                       Categorization Games (CGs) and evaluate them in the
                       light of semantic data of linguistic categorization
                       outside the domain of colors. This comparison reveals
                       two specifics of the CG paradigm: Firstly, the emerging
                       categories draw basically on the predefined topology of
                       the learning domain. Secondly, the kind of categories
                       that can be learnt in CGs is bound to
                       context-independent intersective categories. This
                       suggests that the NG and the CG focus on a special
                       aspect of natural language categorization, which
                       disregards context-sensitive categories used in a

                       dynamic or evolutionary frameworks that are concerned
                       with the development of linguistic categories within a
                       population of language users. Although these studies
                       mostly emphasize that their models are abstract, the
                       paradigm categorization domain is preferably that of
                       colors. In this paper, the authors argue that color
                       adjectives are special predicates in both linguistic
                       and metaphysical terms: semantically, they are
                       intersective predicates, metaphysically, color
                       properties can be empirically reduced onto purely
                       physical properties. The restriction of categorization
                       simulations to the color paradigm systematically leads
                       to ignoring two ubiquitous features of natural language
                       predicates, namely relativity and context-dependency.
                       Therefore, the models for simulation models of
                       linguistic categories are not able to capture the
                       formation of categories like perspective-dependent
                       predicates ‘left’ and ‘right’, subsective
                       predicates like ‘small’ and ‘big’, or
                       predicates that make reference to abstract objects like
                       ‘I prefer this kind of situation’. The authors
                       develop a three-dimensional grid of ascending
                       complexity that is partitioned according to the
                       semiotic triangle. They also develop a conceptual model
                       in the form of a decision grid by means of which the

                       Hypothesis in the area of complex network theory. This
                       is done by analyzing social ontologies as a new
                       resource for automatic language classification. Our
                       method is to solely explore structural features of
                       social ontologies in order to predict family
                       resemblances of languages used by the corresponding
                       communities to build these ontologies. This approach is
                       based on a reformulation of the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis
                       in terms of distributed cognition. Starting from a
                       corpus of 160 Wikipedia-based social ontologies, we
                       test our variant of the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis by
                       several experiments, and find out that we outperform
                       the corresponding baselines. All in all, the article
                       develops an approach to classify linguistic networks of
                       tens of thousands of vertices by exploring a small
                       range of mathematically well-established topological

                       important for many institutional and individual users.
                       Formulas for approximately measuring text readability
                       have a long tradition. Usually, they exploit
                       surface-oriented indicators like sentence length, word
                       length, word frequency, etc. However, in many cases,
                       this information is not adequate to realistically
                       approximate the cognitive difficulties a person can
                       have to understand a text. Therefore we use deep
                       syntactic and semantic indicators in addition. The
                       syntactic information is represented by a dependency
                       tree, the semantic information by a semantic network.
                       Both representations are automatically generated by a
                       deep syntactico-semantic analysis. A global readability
                       score is determined by applying a nearest neighbor
                       algorithm on 3,000 ratings of 300 test persons. The
                       evaluation showed that the deep syntactic and semantic
                       indicators lead to promising results comparable to the
                       best surface-based indicators. The combination of deep
                       and shallow indicators leads to an improvement over
                       shallow indicators alone. Finally, a graphical user
                       interface was developed which highlights difficult
                       passages, depending on the individual indicator values,
                       and displays a global readability score.},

                       language classification by means of linguistic
                       networks. Networks of 11 languages were constructed
                       from dependency treebanks, and the topology of these
                       networks serves as input to the classification
                       algorithm. The results match the genealogical
                       similarities of these languages. In addition, we test
                       two alternative approaches to automatic language
                       classification – one based on n-grams and the other
                       on quantitative typological indices. All three methods
                       show good results in identifying genealogical groups.
                       Beyond genetic similarities, network features (and
                       feature combinations) offer a new source of typological
                       information about languages. This information can

                       web-based social networks, inducing both common-sense
                       and domain-specific knowledge as constructed by a
                       multitude of users, we will establish an improvement in
                       performance of selected tasks within different areas of
                       information retrieval. This work connects the concepts
                       and the methods of social networks and the semantic web
                       to support the analysis of a social semantic web that
                       combines human intelligence with machine learning and
                       natural language processing. In this context, social
                       networks, as instances of the social web, are capable
                       in delivering social network data and document
                       collections on a tremendous scale, inducing thematic
                       dynamics that cannot be achieved by traditional expert
                       resources. The question of an automatic conversion,
                       annotation and processing, however, is central to the
                       debate of the benefits of the social semantic web.

                       rapidly rising flood of information and at the same

                       in this large, but more importantly decentralized
                       internet. The present work researches the performance
                       of social semantic-induced categorization by means of
                       different document models. We will shed light on the

                       topics, text and web genre categorization, and also the
                       domain of sentiment analysis. We will show in extensive

                       subject-specific metadata of scholarly publications is
                       of utmost interest. One of the most prevalent
                       approaches for metadata exchange is the XML-based Open
                       Archive Initiative (OAI) Protocol for Metadata
                       Harvesting (OAI-PMH). However, due to its loose
                       requirements regarding metadata content there is no
                       strict standard for consistent subject indexing
                       specified, which is furthermore needed in the digital
                       library domain. This contribution addresses the problem
                       of automatic enhancement of OAI metadata by means of
                       the most widely used universal classification schemes
                       in libraries—the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC).
                       To be more specific, we automatically classify
                       scientific documents according to the DDC taxonomy
                       within three levels using a machine learning-based
                       classifier that relies solely on OAI metadata records
                       as the document representation. The results show an
                       asymmetric distribution of documents across the
                       hierarchical structure of the DDC taxonomy and issues
                       of data sparseness. However, the performance of the
                       classifier shows promising results on all three levels
                       of the DDC.},

                       the tree and ending at the vertex under consideration.
                       In a second part, the chapter generalizes this class of
                       spanning trees in order to allow for damped Markovian
                       effects in the course of spanning. These two effects,
                       (1) the sensitivity to the contexts generated by
                       consecutive edges and (2) the decreasing impact of more
                       antecedent (or 'weakly remembered') vertices, are well
                       known in cognitive modeling [6, 10, 21, 23]. In this
                       sense, the chapter can also be read as an effort to
                       introduce a graph model to support the simulation of
                       cognitive systems. Note that MSMTs are not to be
                       confused with branching Markov chains or Markov trees
                       [20] as we focus on generating spanning trees from
                       given weighted undirected networks.},

                       each other linguistically, that is, they align
                       interpersonally. In this article, we develop a
                       framework for modeling interpersonal alignment in terms
                       of the structural similarity of the interlocutors’
                       dialog lexica. This is done by means of so-called
                       two-layer time-aligned network series, that is, a
                       time-adjusted graph model. The graph model is
                       partitioned into two layers, so that the
                       interlocutors’ lexica are captured as subgraphs of an
                       encompassing dialog graph. Each constituent network of
                       the series is updated utterance-wise. Thus, both the
                       inherent bipartition of dyadic conversations and their
                       gradual development are modeled. The notion of
                       alignment is then operationalized within a quantitative
                       model of structure formation based on the mutual
                       information of the subgraphs that represent the
                       interlocutor’s dialog lexica. By adapting and further
                       developing several models of complex network theory, we
                       show that dialog lexica evolve as a novel class of
                       graphs that have not been considered before in the area
                       of complex (linguistic) networks. Additionally, we show
                       that our framework allows for classifying dialogs
                       according to their alignment status. To the best of our
                       knowledge, this is the first approach to measuring
                       alignment in communication that explores the
                       similarities of graph-like cognitive representations.},

                       like information retrieval/extraction or text
                       generation, and in a multitude of domains, such as
                       biology, medicine or business and commerce. To be
                       actually usable in such real-world scenarios,
                       ontologies usually have to encompass a large number of
                       factual statements. However, with increasing size, it
                       becomes very diffcult to ensure their complete
                       correctness. This is particularly true in the case when
                       an ontology is not hand-crafted but constructed
                       (semi)automatically through text mining, for example.
                       As a consequence, when inference mechanisms are applied
                       on these ontologies, even minimal inconsistencies of
                       tentimes lead to serious errors and are hard to trace
                       back and find. This paper addresses this issue and
                       describes a method to validate ontologies using an
                       automatic theorem prover and MultiNet axioms. This
                       logic-based approach allows to detect many
                       inconsistencies, which are diffcult or even impossible
                       to identify through statistical methods or by manual
                       investigation in reasonable time. To make this approach
                       accessible for ontology developers, a graphical user
                       interface is provided that highlights erroneous axioms
                       directly in the ontology for quicker fixing.},

                       first step are extracting several patterns. These
                       patterns are then applied to previously unseen texts
                       and used to recognize hypernym/hyponym pairs. Normally
                       these approaches are only based on a surface

                       like plagiarism detection, information retrieval, text
                       summarization, and question answering. Current
                       approaches are mostly surface-oriented (or use only
                       shallow syntactic representations) and see each text
                       only as a token list. In this work however, we describe
                       a deep, semantically oriented method based on semantic
                       networks which are derived by a syntactico-semantic
                       parser. Semantically identical or similar semantic
                       networks for each sentence of a given base text are
                       efficiently retrieved by using a specialized semantic
                       network index. In order to detect many kinds of
                       paraphrases the current base semantic network is varied
                       by applying inferences: lexico-semantic relations,
                       relation axioms, and meaning postulates. Some important
                       phenomena occurring in difficult-to-detect duplicates
                       are discussed. The deep approach profits from
                       background knowledge, whose acquisition from corpora
                       like Wikipedia is explained briefly. This deep
                       duplicate recognizer is combined with two shallow
                       duplicate recognizers in order to guarantee high recall
                       for texts which are not fully parsable. The evaluation
                       shows that the combined approach preserves recall and
                       increases precision considerably, in comparison to
                       traditional shallow methods. For the evaluation, a
                       standard corpus of German plagiarisms was extended by
                       four diverse components with an emphasis on duplicates
                       (and not just plagiarisms), e.g., news feed articles
                       from different web sources and two translations of the
                       same short story.},

                       representations, on semantic networks (SNs). These SNs
                       are derived from texts (in our case, the German Wikip

                       carried out by using, among other components, an
                       automated theorem prover, whose work is based on a set

                       heterogeneous data sets within a single, consistent
                       framework. Secondly, a set of automatized procedures is
                       described that offers assistance to researchers in
                       various data-related use cases. Finally, an approach to
                       easy yet powerful data retrieval is introduced in form
                       of a specialised querying language for multimodal data.},

                       Beschleunigung des Medienwandels. Die Herausforderung
                       stellt sich auch mit der Frage, welches die neuen
                       Formen und Strukturen sind, die aus dem Wandel der
                       Medien hervorgehen. R{\"u}ckt man diese Frage in den
                       Fokus der {\"U}berlegungen, kommen erstens
                       Entwicklungen im Wechsel von Massenmedien zu neuen,
                       „interaktiven`` Medien in den Blick. Dies betrifft
                       den Wandel von den alten Medien in Form von
                       Einwegkommunikation zu den neuen Medien in Form von
                       Netzkommunikation. Dieser Wandel wurde in zahlreichen
                       Analysen als eine Revolution beschrieben: Im
                       Unterschied zur einseitigen, r{\"u}ckkopplungsarmen
                       Kommunikationsform der Massenmedien sollen neue,
                       computergest{\"u}tzte Formen der Medienkommunikation
                       „interaktiv`` sein, d.h. gesteigerte
                       R{\"u}ckkopplungs- und Eingriffsm{\"o}glichkeiten
                       f{\"u}r die Adressaten und Nutzer bieten.
                       Sozialwissenschaftlich bedeutsam ist dabei die
                       Einsch{\"a}tzung der Qualit{\"a}t und des Umfangs
                       dieser neuen M{\"o}glichkeiten und Leistungen. Denn
                       bislang bedeutete Medienwandel im Kern eine zunehmende
                       Ausdifferenzierung alter und neuer Medien mit je
                       spezifischen Leistungen, d.h. neue Medien ersetzen die
                       {\"a}lteren nicht, sondern sie erg{\"a}nzen und
                       erweitern sie. Allerdings wird im Zuge des aktuellen
                       Medienwandels immer deutlicher, dass die neuen Medien
                       durchaus imstande sind, die Leistungen massenmedialer
                       Verbreitung von Kommunikation zu {\"u}bernehmen. Stehen

      abstract       = {There is a substantial body of work on the extraction
                       of relations from texts, most of which is based on
                       pattern matching or on applying tree kernel functions
                       to syntactic structures. Whereas pattern application is
                       usually more efficient, tree kernels can be superior
                       when assessed by the F-measure. In this paper, we
                       introduce a hybrid approach to extracting meronymy
                       relations, which is based on both patterns and kernel
                       functions. In a first step, meronymy relation
                       hypotheses are extracted from a text corpus by applying
                       patterns. In a second step these relation hypotheses
                       are validated by using several shallow features and a
                       graph kernel approach. In contrast to other meronymy
                       extraction and validation methods which are based on
                       surface or syntactic representations we use a purely
                       semantic approach based on semantic networks. This
                       involves analyzing each sentence of the Wikipedia
                       corpus by a deep syntactico-semantic parser and
                       converting it into a semantic network. Meronymy
                       relation hypotheses are extracted from the semantic
                       networks by means of an automated theorem prover, which
                       employs a set of logical axioms and patterns in the
                       form of semantic networks. The meronymy candidates are
                       then validated by means of a graph kernel approach
                       based on common walks. The evaluation shows that this
                       method achieves considerably higher accuracy, recall,
                       and F-measure than a method using purely shallow
                       validation.},

      abstract       = {In addition to the well-known linguistic alignment
                       processes in dyadic communication – e.g., phonetic,
                       syntactic, semantic alignment – we provide evidence
                       for a genuine multimodal alignment process, namely
                       semiotic alignment. Communicative elements from
                       different modalities 'routinize into' cross-modal
                       'super-signs', which we call multimodal ensembles.
                       Computational models of human communication are in need
                       of expressive models of multimodal ensembles. In this
                       paper, we exemplify semiotic alignment by means of
                       empirical examples of the building of multimodal
                       ensembles. We then propose a graph model of multimodal
                       dialogue that is expressive enough to capture
                       multimodal ensembles. In line with this model, we
                       define a novel task in machine learning with the aim of
                       training classifiers that can detect semiotic alignment
                       in dialogue. This model is in support of approaches
                       which need to gain insights into realistic
                       human-machine communication.},

                       far away from judging the understandability of texts
                       consists in the fact that no semantic information is
                       used. Syntactic, lexical, or morphological information
                       can only give limited access for estimating the
                       cognitive difficulties for a human being to comprehend
                       a text. In this paper however, we present a readability
                       checker which uses semantic information in addition.
                       This information is represented as semantic networks
                       and is derived by a deep syntactico-semantic analysis.
                       We investigate in which situations a semantic
                       readability indicator can lead to superior results in
                       comparison with ordinary surface indicators like
                       sentence length. Finally, we compute the weights of our
                       semantic indicators in the readability function based
                       on the user ratings collected in an online evaluation.},

                       supervised learning and extract in a first step several
                       patterns. These patterns are then applied to previously
                       unseen texts and used to recognize hypernym/hyponym
                       pairs. Normally these approaches are only based on a
                       surface representation or a syntactic tree structure,
                       i.e., a constituency or dependency tree derived by a
                       syntactical parser. In this work we present an approach
                       which, additionally to shallow patterns, directly
                       operates on semantic networks which are derived by a
                       deep linguistic syntacticosemantic analysis.
                       Furthermore, the shallow approach heavily depends on
                       semantic information, too. It is shown that recall and
                       precision can be improved considerably than by relying

                       the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) as the target
                       scheme. This is done by exploring metadata as provided
                       by the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) to derive
                       document snippets as minimal document representations.
                       The reason is to reduce the effort of document
                       processing in digital libraries. Further, we perform
                       feature selection and extension by means of social
                       ontologies and related web-based lexical resources.
                       This is done to provide reliable topic-related
                       classifications while circumventing the problem of data
                       sparseness. Finally, we evaluate our model by means of
                       two language-specific corpora. This paper bridges
                       digital libraries on the one hand and computational
                       linguistics on the other. The aim is to make accessible
                       computational linguistic methods to provide thematic
                       classifications in digital libraries based on closed
                       topic models as the DDC. Design/methodology/approach:
                       text classification, text-technology, computational
                       linguistics, computational semantics, social semantics.
                       Findings: We show that SVM-based classifiers perform
                       best by exploring certain selections of OAI document
                       metadata. Research limitations/implications: The
                       findings show that it is necessary to further develop
                       SVM-based DDC-classifiers by using larger training sets
                       possibly for more than two languages in order to get
                       better F-measure values. Practical implications: We can
                       show that DDC-classifications come into reach which
                       primarily explore OAI metadata. Originality/value: We
                       provide algorithmic and formal-mathematical information
                       how to build DDC-classifiers for digital libraries.},

                       for the task of topic labelling by means of Open Topic
                       Models. Our approach utilizes a social ontology to
                       create an alignment of documents within a social
                       network. Comprised category information is used to
                       compute a topic generalization. We propose a
                       feature-frequency-based method for measuring semantic
                       relatedness which is needed in order to reduce the
                       number of document features for the task of topic
                       labelling. This method is evaluated against multiple
                       human judgement experiments comprising two languages
                       and three different resources. Overall the results show
                       that social ontologies provide a rich source of
                       terminological knowledge. The performance of the
                       semantic relatedness measure with correlation values of
                       up to .77 are quite promising. Results on the topic
                       labelling experiment show, with an accuracy of up to
                       .79, that our approach can be a valuable method for
                       various NLP applications.},

                       readability score by combining several indicator values
                       by a linear combination. Typical indicators are Average
                       sentence length, Average number of syllables per word,
                       etc. Usually the parameters of the linear combination
                       are determined by a linear OLS (ordinary least square
                       estimation) minimizing the sum of the squared residuals
                       in comparison with human ratings for a given set of
                       texts. The usage of OLS leads to several drawbacks.
                       First, the parameters are not constraint in any way and
                       are therefore not intuitive and difficult to interpret.
                       Second, if the number of parameters become large, the
                       effect of overfitting easily occurs. Finally, OLS is
                       quite sensitive to outliers. Therefore, an alternative
                       method is presented which avoids these drawbacks and is
                       based on robust regression.},

                       and classifying large complex networks by example of
                       wiki graphs. By means of this framework we reliably
                       measure the similarity of document, agent, and word
                       networks by solely regarding their topology. In doing
                       so, the article departs from classical approaches to
                       complex network theory which focuses on topological
                       characteristics in order to check their small world
                       property. This does not only include characteristics
                       that have been studied in complex network theory, but
                       also some of those which were invented in social
                       network analysis and hypertext theory. We show that
                       network classifications come into reach which go beyond
                       the hypertext structures traditionally analyzed in web
                       mining. The reason is that we focus on networks as a
                       whole as units to be classified—above the level of
                       websites and their constitutive pages. As a
                       consequence, we bridge classical approaches to text and
                       web mining on the one hand and complex network theory
                       on the other hand. Last but not least, this approach
                       also provides a framework for quantifying the
                       linguistic notion of intertextuality.},

                       present a data mining algorithm which deduces incorrect
                       grammar rules by abductive reasoning out of positive
                       and negative training examples. More specifcally, the
                       constituency trees belonging to successful generation
                       processes and the incomplete trees of failed ones are
                       analyzed. From this a quality score is derived for each
                       grammar rule by analyzing the occurrences of the rules
                       in the trees and by spotting the exact error locations
                       in the incomplete trees. In prior work on automatic
                       error detection v.d.Brück et al. [5] proposed a static
                       error detection algorithm for generation grammars. The
                       approach of Cussens et al. creates missing grammar
                       rules for parsing using abduction [1]. Zeller
                       introduced a dynamic approach in the related area of
                       detecting errors in computer programs [6].},

                       The primary application scenario for which we plan to
                       build this resource is the automatic identification of
                       web genres. Web genres are rather difficult to capture

                       finished reference corpus to contain multi-level tags
                       of the respective genre or genres a web document or a
                       website instantiates. As the construction of such a
                       corpus is by no means a trivial task, we discuss
                       several alternatives that are, for the time being,
                       mostly based on existing collections. Furthermore, we

                       learning. Established approaches have to be enhanced
                       and new methods be developed in order to tackle the
                       problem of finding and organising relevant information.
                       It has often been motivated that semantic
                       classifications of input documents help solving this
                       task. But while approaches of supervised text
                       categorisation perform quite well on genres found in
                       written text, newly evolved genres on the web are much
                       more demanding. In order to successfully develop
                       approaches to web mining, respective corpora are
                       needed. However, the composition of genre- or
                       domain-specific web corpora is still an unsolved
                       problem. It is time consuming to build large corpora of
                       good quality because web pages typically lack reliable
                       meta information. Wikipedia along with similar
                       approaches of collaborative text production offers a
                       way out of this dilemma. We examine how social tagging,
                       as supported by the MediaWiki software, can be utilised
                       as a source of corpus building. Further, we describe a
                       representation format for social ontologies and present
                       the Wikipedia Category Explorer, a tool which supports
                       categorical views to browse through the Wikipedia and
                       to construct domain specific corpora for machine

                       classes which denote text types whose textual instances
                       serve more or less homogeneous functions. Other than
                       mainstream approaches to text classification, which
                       rely on the vector space model [30] or some of its
                       descendants [2] and, thus, on content-related lexical
                       features, we solely refer to structural differentiae,
                       that is, to patterns of text structure as determinants
                       of class membership. Further, we suppose that text
                       types span a type hierarchy based on the type-subtype
                       relation [31]. Thus, although we admit that class
                       membership is fuzzy so that overlapping classes are
                       inevitable, we suppose a non-overlapping type system
                       structured into a rooted tree – whether solely based
                       on functional or additional on, e.g., content- or
                       mediabased criteria [1]. What regards criteria of
                       goodness of classification, we perform a classical
                       supervised categorization experiment [30] based on
                       cross-validation as a method of model selection [11].
                       That is, we perform a categorization experiment in
                       which for all training and test cases class membership
                       is known ex ante. In summary, we perform a supervised
                       experiment of text classification in order to learn
                       functionally grounded text types where membership to
                       these types is solely based on structural criteria.},

                       for the classification of XML documents based on their
                       DOM trees. DOM trees are ordered trees in which every
                       node might be labeled by a vector of attributes
                       including its XML tag and the textual content. We
                       describe five new kernels suitable for such structures:
                       a kernel based on predefined structural features, a
                       tree kernel derived from the well-known parse tree
                       kernel, the set tree kernel that allows permutations of
                       children, the string tree kernel being an extension of
                       the so-called partial tree kernel, and the soft tree
                       kernel as a more efficient alternative. We evaluate the
                       kernels experimentally on a corpus containing the DOM

                       Perspektive ist es vor allem der Gestaltcharakter,

                       dienen. Im folgenden wird unter Rekurs auf den

                       consists in the fact that no semantic information is
                       used. Syntactic, lexical, or morphological information
                       can only give limited access for estimating the
                       cognitive difficulties for a human being to comprehend
                       a text. In this paper however, we present a readability
                       checker which uses semantic information in addition.
                       This information is represented as semantic networks
                       and is derived by a deep syntactico-semantic analysis.
                       We investigate in which situations a semantic
                       readability indicator can lead to superior results in
                       comparison with ordinary surface indicators like
                       sentence length. Finally, we compute the correlations

                       trivially read off as the terminal yield. Such grammars
                       may consist of a large number of rules. Finding errors
                       is quite tedious and sometimes very time-consuming.
                       Often the generation fails because the relevant input
                       subtree is not specified correctly. This work describes
                       a method to detect and correct wrong assignments of

                       cross-validating grammar rules with the given input

                       learning methods to determine parameters for DeLite, a
                       readability checking tool. DeLite pinpoints text
                       segments that are difficult to understand and computes
                       for a given text a global readability score, which is a
                       weighted sum of normalized indicator values. Indicator
                       values are numeric properties derived from linguistic
                       units in the text, such as the distance between a verb
                       and its complements or the number of possible
                       antecedents for a pronoun. Indicators are normalized by
                       means of a derivation of the Fermi function with two
                       parameters. DeLite requires individual parameters for
                       this normalization function and a weight for each
                       indicator to compute the global readability score.
                       Several experiments to determine these parameters were
                       conducted, using different machine learning approaches.
                       The training data consists of more than 300 user
                       ratings of texts from the municipality domain. The
                       weights for the indicators are learned using two
                       approaches: i) robust regression with linear
                       optimization and ii) an approximative iterative linear
                       regression algorithm. For evaluation, the computed
                       readability scores are compared to user ratings. The
                       evaluation showed that iterative linear regression
                       yields a smaller square error than robust regression
                       although this method is only approximative. Both
                       methods yield results outperforming a first manual
                       setting, and for both methods, basically the same set
                       of non-zero weights remain.},

                       of dysphagic as opposed to healthy subjects�
                       deglutition in terms of structure properties of the
                       pharyngeal phase of deglutition. We obtained the
                       following results. The duration of deglutition apnea is
                       significantly higher in the older group than in the
                       younger one. Comparing the younger group and the
                       dysphagic group we found significant differences in
                       duration of deglutition apnea, onset time, and number
                       of gulps. Just one parameter, number of gulps,
                       distinguishes significantly between the older and the
                       dysphagic groups. The second part of the study aimed at
                       evaluating the reliability of CA in detecting dysphagia
                       measured as the concordance and the correctness of CA
                       experts in classifying swallowing sounds. The
                       interrater reliability coefficient AC1 resulted in a
                       value of 0.46, which is to be interpreted as fair
                       agreement. Furthermore, we found that comparison with
                       radiologically defined aspiration/penetration for the
                       group of experts (speech and language therapists)
                       yielded 70% specificity and 94% sensitivity. We
                       conclude that the swallowing sounds contain audible
                       cues that should, in principle, permit reliable
                       classification and view CA as an early warning system
                       for identifying patients with a high risk of
                       aspiration/penetration; however, it is not appropriate
                       as a stand-alone tool.},

      abstract       = {A crucial figure of merit for a spelling checker is
                       not just whether it can detect misspelled words, but
                       also in how it ranks the sugges tions for the word.
                       Spelling checker algorithms using edit distance methods
                       tend to produce a large number of possibilities for
                       misspelled words. We propose an alternative approach to
                       checking the spelling of Bangla text that uses a finite
                       state automaton (FSA) to probabilistically create the
                       suggestion list for a misspelled word. FSA has proven
                       to be an effective method for problems requiring
                       probabilistic solution and high error tolerance. We
                       start by using a finite state representation for all
                       the words in the Bangla dictionary; the algorithm then
                       uses the state tables to test a string, and in case of
                       an erroneous string, try to find all possible solutions
                       by attempting singular and multi - step transitions to
                       consume one or more characters and using the su
                       bsequent characters as look - ahead; and finally, we
                       use backtracking to add each possible solution to the
                       suggestion list. The use of finite state representation
                       for the word implies that the algorithm is much more
                       efficient in the case of non - inflected for ms; in
                       case of nouns, it is even more significant as Bangla
                       nouns are heavily used in the non - inflected form. In
                       terms of error detection and correction, the algorithm
                       uses the statistics of Bangla error pattern and thus
                       produces a small number of signific ant suggestions.
                       One notable limitation is the inability to handle
                       transposition errors as a single edit distance errors.
                       This is not as significant as it may seem since the
                       number of transposition errors are not as common as
                       other errors in Bangla. This p aper presents the
                       structure and the algorithm to implement a Practical
                       Bangla spell - checker, and discusses the results
                       obtained from the prototype implementation.},

                       et al., 2001; Joachims, 2002; Power et al., 2003).
                       These reference points do not open necessarily
                       orthogonal perspectives on text classification. As part
                       of explorative data analysis, text classification aims
                       at automatically dividing sets of textual objects into
                       classes of maximum internal homogeneity and external
                       heterogeneity. This paper deals with classifying texts
                       into text types whose instances serve more or less
                       homogeneous functions. Other than mainstream
                       approaches, which rely on the vector space model
                       (Sebastiani, 2002) or some of its descendants
                       (Baeza-Yates and Ribeiro-Neto, 1999) and, thus, on
                       content-related lexical features, we solely refer to
                       structural differentiae. That is, we explore patterns
                       of text structure as determinants of class membership.
                       Our starting point are tree-like text representations
                       which induce feature vectors and tree kernels. These
                       kernels are utilized in supervised learning based on
                       cross-validation as a method of model selection (Hastie
                       et al., 2001) by example of a corpus of press
                       communication. For a subset of categories we show that
                       classification can be performed very well by structural
                       differentia only.},

                       compositionality in quantitative text semantics as an
                       alternative to the bag-of-features approach. The
                       variant includes effects of context-sensitive
                       interpretation as well as processes of meaning
                       constitution and change in the sense of usage-based
                       semantics. Its starting point is a combination of
                       semantic space modeling and text structure analysis.
                       The principle is implemented by means of a hierarchical
                       constraint satisfaction process which utilizes the
                       notion of hierarchical text structure superimposed by
                       graph-inducing coherence relations. The major
                       contribution of the chapter is a conceptualization and
                       formalization of the principle of compositionality in
                       terms of semantic spaces which tackles some well known
                       deficits of existing approaches. In particular this
                       relates to the missing linguistic interpretability of
                       statistical meaning representations. },

                       of function learning based on the bag-of-features
                       approach. This scenario faces the problem of a

                       similarity of document structures are based on, e.g.,
                       tag measures, path metrics and tree measures in terms
                       of their DOM-Trees. Other methods measures the
                       similarity in the framework of the well known vector
                       space model. In contrast to these we present a new
                       approach to measuring the structural similarity of
                       web-based documents represented by so called
                       generalized trees which are more general than DOM-Trees
                       which represent only directed rooted trees. We will
                       design a new similarity measure for graphs representing
                       web-based hypertext structures. Our similarity measure
                       is mainly based on a novel representation of a graph as
                       strings of linear integers, whose components represent
                       structural properties of the graph. The similarity of
                       two graphs is then defined as the optimal alignment of
                       the underlying property strings. In this paper we apply
                       the well known technique of sequence alignments to
                       solve a novel and challenging problem: Measuring the
                       structural similarity of generalized trees. More
                       precisely, we first transform our graphs considered as
                       high dimensional objects in linear structures. Then we
                       derive similarity values from the alignments of the
                       property strings in order to measure the structural
                       similarity of generalized trees. Hence, we transform a
                       graph similarity problem to a string similarity
                       problem. We demonstrate that our similarity measure
                       captures important structural information by applying
                       it to two different test sets consisting of graphs

                       computational linguistics and language processing.
                       While there are established morphological analyzers for
                       mostly Western and a few other languages using
                       localized interfaces, the same cannot be said for Indic
                       and other less-studied languages for which language
                       processing is just beginning. There are three primary
                       obstacles to computational morphological analysis of
                       these less-studied languages: the generative rules that
                       define the language morphology, the morphological
                       processor, and the computational interface that a
                       linguist can use to experiment with the generative
                       rules. In this paper, we present JKimmo, a multilingual
                       morphological open-source framework that uses the
                       PC-KIMMO two-level morphological processor and provides
                       a localized interface for Bangla morphological
                       analysis. We then apply Jkimmo to Bangla computational
                       morphology, demonstrating both its recognition and
                       generation capabilities. Jkimmo’s
                       internationalization (i18n) frame-work allows easy
                       localization in other languages as well, using a
                       property file for the interface definitions and a
                       transliteration scheme for the analysis.},

                       overwhelming set of documents online the adaptation of
                       text categorization to web units has recently been
                       pushed. The aim is to utilize categories of web sites
                       and pages as an additional retrieval criterion. In this
                       context, the bag-of-words model has been utilized just
                       as HTML tags and link structures. In spite of promising
                       results this adaptation stays in the framework of IR
                       specific models since it neglects the content-based
                       structuring inherent to hypertext units. This paper
                       approaches hypertext modelling from the perspective of
                       graph-theory. It presents an XML-based format for
                       representing websites as hypergraphs. These hypergraphs
                       are used to shed light on the relation of hypertext
                       structure types and their web-based instances. We place
                       emphasis on two characteristics of this relation: In
                       terms of realizational ambiguity we speak of functional
                       equivalents to the manifestation of the same structure
                       type. In terms of polymorphism we speak of a single web
                       unit which manifests different structure types. It is
                       shown that polymorphism is a prevalent characteristic
                       of web-based units. This is done by means of a
                       categorization experiment which analyses a corpus of
                       hypergraphs representing the structure and content of
                       pages of conference websites. On this background we
                       plead for a revision of text representation models by
                       means of hypergraphs which are sensitive to the
                       manifold structuring of web documents.},

                       mining the structure of web-based documents is of
                       considerable interest. In this paper we present a
                       similarity measure for graphs representing web-based
                       hypertext structures. Our similarity measure is mainly
                       based on a novel representation of a graph as linear
                       integer strings, whose components represent structural
                       properties of the graph. The similarity of two graphs
                       is then defined as the optimal alignment of the
                       underlying property strings. In this paper we apply the
                       well known technique of sequence alignments for solving
                       a novel and challenging problem: Measuring the
                       structural similarity of generalized trees. In other
                       words: We first transform our graphs considered as high
                       dimensional objects in linear structures. Then we
                       derive similarity values from the alignments of the
                       property strings in order to measure the structural
                       similarity of generalized trees. Hence, we transform a
                       graph similarity problem to a string similarity problem
                       for developing a efficient graph similarity measure. We
                       demonstrate that our similarity measure captures
                       important structural information by applying it to two
                       different test sets consisting of graphs representing

      abstract       = {Corpus linguistics and related disciplines which focus
                       on statistical analyses of textual units have
                       substantial need for large corpora. More specifically,
                       genre or register specific corpora are needed which
                       allow studying variations in language use. Along with
                       the incredible growth of the internet, the web became
                       an important source of linguistic data. Of course, web
                       corpora face the same problem of acquiring genre
                       specific corpora. Amongst other things, web mining is
                       a framework of methods for automatically assigning
                       category labels to web units and thus may be seen as a
                       solution to this corpus acquisition problem as far as
                       genre categories are applied. The paper argues that
                       this approach is faced with the problem of a
                       many-to-many relation between expression units on the
                       one hand and content or function units on the other
                       hand. A quantitative study is performed which supports
                       the argumentation that functions of web-based
                       communication are very often concentrated on single web
                       pages and thus interfere any effort of directly
                       applying the classical apparatus of categorization on
                       web page level. The paper outlines a two-level
                       algorithm as an alternative approach to category
                       assignment which is sensitive to genre specific
                       structures and thus may be used to tackle the problem
                       of acquiring genre specific corpora.},

                       mit dem Hinweis auf die enorme Zunahme online
                       verfügbarer Dokumente, ob nun im Internet oder in
                       Intranets (Losiewicz et al. 2000; Merkl 2000; Feldman
                       2001; Mehler 2001; Joachims \& Leopold 2002). Der
                       hiermit einhergehenden „Informationsflut“ wird das
                       Ungenügen des Information Retrieval (IR) bzw. seiner
                       g{\"a}ngigen Verfahren der Informationsaufbereitung und
                       Informationserschlie{\ss}ung gegenübergestellt. Es
                       wird bem{\"a}ngelt, dass sich das IR weitgehend darin
                       erschöpft, Teilmengen von Textkollektionen auf
                       Suchanfragen hin aufzufinden und in der Regel blo{\ss}
                       listenförmig anzuordnen. Das auf diese Weise
                       dargestellte Spannungsverh{\"a}ltnis von
                       Informationsexplosion und Defiziten bestehender
                       IR-Verfahren bildet den Hintergrund für die
                       Entwicklung von Verfahren zur automatischen
                       Verarbeitung textueller Einheiten, die sich st{\"a}rker
                       an den Anforderungen von Informationssuchenden
                       orientieren. Anders ausgedrückt: Mit der Einführung
                       der Neuen Medien w{\"a}chst die Bedeutung
                       digitalisierter Dokumente als Prim{\"a}rmedium für die
                       Verarbeitung, Verbreitung und Verwaltung von
                       Information in öffentlichen und betrieblichen
                       Organisationen. Dabei steht wegen der Menge zu
                       verarbeitender Einheiten die Alternative einer
                       intellektuellen Dokumenterschlie{\ss}ung nicht zur
                       Verfügung. Andererseits wachsen die Anforderung an
                       eine automatische Textanalyse, der das klassische IR
                       nicht gerecht wird. Der Mehrzahl der hiervon
                       betroffenen textuellen Einheiten fehlt die explizite
                       Strukturiertheit formaler Datenstrukturen. Vielmehr
                       weisen sie je nach Text- bzw. Dokumenttyp ganz
                       unterschiedliche Strukturierungsgrade auf. Dabei
                       korreliert die Flexibilit{\"a}t der Organisationsziele
                       negativ mit dem Grad an explizierter Strukturiertheit
                       und positiv mit der Anzahl jener Texte und Texttypen
                       (E-Mails, Memos, Expertisen, technische Dokumentationen
                       etc.), die im Zuge ihrer Realisierung produziert bzw.
                       rezipiert werden. Vor diesem Hintergrund entsteht ein
                       Bedarf an Texttechnologien, die ihren Benutzern nicht
                       nur „intelligente“ Schnittstellen zur Textrezeption
                       anbieten, sondern zugleich auf inhaltsorientierte
                       Textanalysen zielen, um auf diese Weise
                       aufgabenrelevante Daten explorieren und kontextsensitiv
                       aufbereiten zu helfen. Das Text Mining ist mit dem
                       Versprechen verbunden, eine solche Technologie
                       darzustellen bzw. sich als solche zu entwickeln. Dieser
                       einheitlichen Problembeschreibung stehen konkurrierende
                       Textmining-Spezifikationen gegenüber, was bereits die
                       Vielfalt der Namensgebungen verdeutlicht. So finden
                       sich neben der Bezeichnung Text Mining (Joachims \&
                       Leopold 2002; Tan 1999) die Alternativen • Text Data
                       Mining (Hearst 1999b; Merkl 2000), • Textual Data
                       Mining (Losiewicz et al. 2000), • Text Knowledge
                       Engineering (Hahn \& Schnattinger 1998), Knowledge
                       Discovery in Texts (Kodratoff 1999) oder Knowledge
                       Discovery in Textual Databases (Feldman \& Dagan 1995).
                       Dabei l{\"a}sst bereits die Namensgebung erkennen, dass
                       es sich um Analogiebildungen zu dem (nur unwesentlich
                       {\"a}lteren) Forschungsgebiet des Data Mining (DM; als
                       Bestandteil des Knowledge Discovery in Databases –
                       KDD) handelt. Diese Namensvielfalt findet ihre
                       Entsprechung in widerstreitenden Aufgabenzuweisungen.
                       So setzt beispielsweise Sebastiani (2002)
                       Informationsextraktion und Text Mining weitgehend
                       gleich, wobei er eine Schnittmenge zwischen Text Mining
                       und Textkategorisierung ausmacht (siehe auch Dörre et
                       al. 1999). Demgegenüber betrachten Kosala \& Blockeel
                       (2000) Informationsextraktion und Textkategorisierung
                       lediglich als Teilbereiche des ihrer Ansicht nach
                       umfassenderen Text Mining, w{\"a}hrend Hearst (1999a)
                       im Gegensatz hierzu Informationsextraktion und
                       Textkategorisierung explizit aus dem Bereich des
                       explorativen Text Mining ausschlie{\ss}t.},

                       courses in any undergraduate Computer Science
                       curriculum, due in part to the complexity and the
                       breadth of the material covered in a typical 14-15 week
                       semester time frame. The situation is further
                       complicated by the fact that most undergraduates have
                       never implemented a large enough software package that
                       is needed for a working compiler, and to do so in such
                       a short time span is a challenge indeed. This
                       necessitates changes in the way we teach compilers, and
                       specifically in ways we set up the project for the
                       Compiler Design course at the undergraduate level. We
                       describe a template based method for teaching compiler
                       design and implementation to the undergraduates, where
                       the students fill in the blanks in a set of templates
                       for each phase of the compiler, starting from the
                       lexical scanner to the code generator. Compilers for
                       new languages can be implemented by modifying only the
                       parts necessary to implement the syntax and the
                       semantics of the language, leaving much of the
                       remaining environment as is. The students not only
                       learn how to design the various phases of the compiler,
                       but also learn the software design and engineering
                       techniques for implementing large software systems. In
                       this paper, we describe a compiler teaching methodology
                       that implements a full working compiler for an
                       imperative C-like programming language with backend
                       code generators for MIPS, Java Virtual Machine (JVM)

                       Rezeptionshilfen zu gewinnen. Dies betrifft
                       insbesondere die Bew{\"a}ltigung der ungeheuren Menge
                       an Fachliteratur im Rahmen der
                       Wissenschaftskommunikation. Von einem thematisch
                       relevanten Text zu einem thematisch verwandten Text per
                       Hyperlink direkt gelangen zu können, stellt einen
                       Anspruch dar, dessen Erfüllung mittels digitaler
                       Bibliotheken n{\"a}her gerückt zu sein scheint. Doch
                       wie lassen sich die Kriterien, nach denen Texte
                       automatisch verlinkt werden, genauer begründen? Dieser
                       Beitrag geht dieser Frage aus der Sicht
                       textlinguistischer Modellbildungen nach. Er zeigt, dass
                       parallel zur Entwicklung der Textlinguistik, wenn auch
                       mit einer gewissen Verzögerung, Konversionsans{\"a}tze
                       entwickelt wurden, die sich jeweils an einer bestimmten
                       Stufe des Textbegriffs orientieren. Der Beitrag weist
                       nicht nur das diesen Ans{\"a}tzen gemeinsame Fundament
                       in Form der so genannten Explikationshypothese nach,
                       sondern verweist zugleich auf grundlegende
                       Automatisierungsdefizite, die mit ihnen verbunden sind.
                       Mit systemisch-funktionalen Hypertexten wird
                       schlie{\ss}lich ein Ansatz skizziert, der darauf zielt,
                       den Anspruch nach textlinguistischer Fundierung und
                       Automatisierbarkeit zu vereinen.},

                       hasmany potential uses, both within and beyond natural

                       existing trademarks in a database, using orthographic
                       and phonetic similarity. We sketch a prototypical

                       Informationssuche bereitstehen. Dabei steht die Frage
                       im Vordergrund, auf welche Weise bestehende Verfahren
                       suchrelevante Dokumente bestimmen und von diesen aus
                       inhaltsverwandte Dokumente verlinken. Dieser Gegenstand
                       verbindet den Bereich des klassischen Information
                       Retrievals (IR) mit einem Anwendungsgebiet, das in der
                       Wissenschaftskommunikation unter dem Stichwort der
                       digitalen Bibliothek unter Nutzbarmachung des
                       Hyperlink-basierten Browsings firmiert. Ein Beispiel
                       hierfür bildet die digitale Bibliothek CiteSeer
                       (Lawrence et al. 1999), welche das Boolesche Retrieval
                       dadurch erweitert, dass ausgehend von Treffern einer
                       Suche jene Dokumente per Link angesteuert werden
                       können, welche die aufgefundenen Dokumente zitieren
                       oder von diesen zitiert werden. CiteSeer ist also ein
                       System, welches das Schlagwort-basierte Querying im
                       Rahmen des klassischen IRs mit dem Hypertext-basierten
                       Browsing von Zitaten verknüpft, und zwar zu dem Zweck,
                       die Suche wissenschaftlicher Dokumente zu erleichtern.
                       Darüber hinaus verwendet es die unter dem Stichwort
                       des Vektorraummodells bekannt gewordene Technologie
                       für den wortbasierten Vergleich von Texten. Der
                       Beitrag setzt an dieser Stelle an. Er argumentiert,
                       dass Verfahren bereitstehen, welche die Anforderung
                       nach inhaltsorientiertem Retrieval mit dem

                       Dokumenten verknüpfen (Storrer 2002), Inhalts- und

                       Frage auf, inwiefern Webpages zum Zwecke ihrer
                       inhaltsorientierten Filterung kategorisiert werden
                       können. Diese Studie untersucht zwei Ph{\"a}nomene,
                       welche die Bedingung der Möglichkeit einer solchen
                       Kategorisierung betreffen (siehe [6]): Mit dem Begriff
                       der funktionalen Aquivalenz beziehen wir uns auf das
                       Ph{\"a}nomen, dass dieselbe Funktions- oder
                       Inhaltskategorie durch völlig verschiedene Bausteine
                       Web-basierter Dokumente manifestiert werden kann. Mit
                       dem Begriff des Polymorphie beziehen wir uns auf das
                       Ph{\"a}nomen, dass dasselbe Dokument zugleich mehrere
                       Funktions- oder Inhaltskategorien manifestieren kann.
                       Die zentrale Hypothese lautet, dass beide Ph{\"a}nomene
                       für Web-basierte Hypertextstrukturen charakteristisch
                       sind. Ist dies der Fall, so kann die automatische
                       Kategorisierung von Hypertexten [2, 10] nicht mehr als
                       eindeutige Zuordnung verstanden werden, bei der einem
                       Dokument genau eine Kategorie zugeordnet wird. In
                       diesem Sinne thematisiert das Papier die Frage nach der

                       automatic generation of adaptable, context-sensitive
                       hypertexts becomes more and more important [El-Beltagy
                       et al., 2001]. This observation contradicts the
                       literature on hypertext authoring, where Information
                       Retrieval techniques prevail, which disregard any
                       linguistic and context-theoretical underpinning. As a
                       consequence, resulting hypertexts do not manifest those
                       schematic structures, which are constitutive for the
                       emergence of text types and the context-mediated
                       understanding of their instances, i.e. natural language
                       texts. This paper utilizes Systemic Functional
                       Linguistics (SFL) and its context model as a
                       theoretical basis of hypertext authoring. So called
                       Systemic Functional Hypertexts (SFHT) are proposed,
                       which refer to a stratified context layer as the proper
                       source of text linkage. The purpose of this paper is
                       twofold: First, hypertexts are reconstructed from a
                       linguistic point of view as a kind of supersign, whose
                       constituents are natural language texts and whose
                       structuring is due to intra- and intertextual coherence
                       relations and their context-sensitive interpretation.
                       Second, the paper prepares a formal notion of SFHTs as
                       a first step towards operationalization of fundamental
                       text linguistic concepts. On this background, SFHTs
                       serve to overcome the theoretical poverty of many
                       approaches to link generation.},

                       semantic spaces are used as a format for modeling
                       similarities of natural language texts represented as
                       vectors. They prove to be efficient in divergent areas,
                       as information retrieval (Dumais 1995), computational
                       psychology (Landauer, Dumais 1997), and computational
                       linguistics (Rieger 1995; Mehler 1998). In order to
                       group semantically similar texts, cluster analysis is
                       used. A central problem of this method relates to the
                       difficulty to name clusters, whereas lists neglect the
                       polyhierarchical structure of semantic spaces. This
                       paper introduces the concept of cohesion tree as an
                       alternative tool for exploring similarity relations of
                       texts represented in high dimensional spaces. Cohesion
                       trees allow the perspective evaluation of numerically
                       represented text similarities. They depart from minimal
                       spanning trees (MST) by context-sensitively optimizing
                       path costs. This central property underlies the
                       linguistic interpretation of cohesion trees: instead of
                       manifesting context-free associations, they model
                       context priming effects.},

                       following, semiotic aspects of text mining are
                       investigated. Based on the primary object of text
                       mining - natural language lexis - the specific
                       complexity of this class of signs is outlined and
                       requirements for the implementation of text mining
                       procedures are derived. This is done with reference to
                       text linkage introduced as a special task in text
                       mining. Text linkage refers to the exploration of
                       implicit, content based relations of texts (and their
                       annotation as typed links in corpora possibly organised
                       as hypertexts). In this context, the term systemic
                       functional hypertext is introduced, which distinguishes
                       genre and register layers for the management of links
                       in a poly-level hypertext system},
