  abstract  = {Purpose: Based on the examples of English and German, we investigate
               to what extent parsers trained on modern variants of these languages
               can be transferred to older language levels without loss. Methods:
               We developed a treebank called DoTT (https://github.com/texttechnologylab/DoTT)
               which covers, roughly, the time period from 1800 until today,
               in conjunction with the further development of the annotation
               tool DependencyAnnotator. DoTT consists of a collection of diachronic
               corpora enriched with dependency annotations using 3 parsers,
               6 pre-trained language models, 5 newly trained models for German,
               and two tag sets (TIGER and Universal Dependencies). To assess
               how the different parsers perform on texts from different time
               periods, we created a gold standard sample as a benchmark. Results:
               We found that the parsers/models perform quite well on modern
               texts (document-level LAS ranging from 82.89 to 88.54) and slightly
               worse on older texts, as expected (average document-level LAS
               84.60 vs. 86.14), but not significantly. For German texts, the
               (German) TIGER scheme achieved slightly better results than UD.
               Conclusion: Overall, this result speaks for the transferability
               of parsers to past language levels, at least dating back until
               around 1800. This very transferability, it is however argued,
               means that studies of language change in the field of dependency
               syntax can draw on dependency distance but miss out on some grammatical
               phenomena.},

               role models for the German language is missing. We point out some
               problems of previous resources and provide a new one due to a
               combined translation and alignment process: The gold standard
               CoNLL-2012 semantic role annotations are translated into German.
               Semantic role labels are transferred due to alignment models.
               The resulting dataset is used to train a German semantic role
               model. With F1-scores around 0.7, the major roles achieve competitive
               evaluation scores, but avoid limitations of previous approaches.

  abstract  = {In 2022, the largest German-speaking corpus of parliamentary protocols
               from three different centuries, on a national and federal level
               from the countries of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein,
               was collected and published - GerParCor. Through GerParCor, it
               became possible to provide for the first time various parliamentary
               protocols which were not available digitally and, moreover, could
               not be retrieved and processed in a uniform manner. Furthermore,
               GerParCor was additionally preprocessed using NLP methods and
               made available in XMI format. In this paper, GerParCor is significantly
               updated by including all new parliamentary protocols in the corpus,
               as well as adding and preprocessing further parliamentary protocols
               previously not covered, so that a period up to 1797 is now covered.
               Besides the integration of a new, state-of-the-art and appropriate
               NLP preprocessing for the handling of large text corpora, this
               update also provides an overview of the further reuse of GerParCor
               by presenting various provisioning capabilities such as API's,
               among others.},

  abstract  = {Automatic analysis of large corpora is a complex task, especially
               in terms of time efficiency. This complexity is increased by the
               fact that flexible, extensible text analysis requires the continuous
               integration of ever new tools. Since there are no adequate frameworks
               for these purposes in the field of NLP, and especially in the
               context of UIMA, that are not outdated or unusable for security
               reasons, we present a new approach to address the latter task:
               Docker Unified UIMA Interface (DUUI), a scalable, flexible, lightweight,
               and feature-rich framework for automatic distributed analysis
               of text corpora that leverages Big Data experience and virtualization
               with Docker. We evaluate DUUI{'}s communication approach against
               a state-of-the-art approach and demonstrate its outstanding behavior
               in terms of time efficiency, enabling the analysis of big text
               data.}

               have to be filled in the next years and a good concept should

  abstract  = {Simulation-based learning is a method in which learners learn
               to master real-life scenarios and tasks from simulated application
               contexts. It is particularly suitable for the use of VR technologies,
               as these allow immersive experiences of the targeted scenarios.
               VR methods are also relevant for studies on online learning, especially
               in groups, as they provide access to a variety of multimodal learning
               and interaction data. However, VR leads to a trade-off between
               technological conditions of the observability of such data and
               the openness of learner behavior. We present Va.Si.Li-Lab, a VR-L
               ab for Simulation-based Learn ing developed to address this trade-off.
               Va.Si.Li-Lab uses a graph-theoretical model based on hypergraphs
               to represent the data diversity of multimodal learning and interaction.
               We develop this data model in relation to mono- and multimodal,
               intra- and interpersonal data and interleave it with ISO-Space
               to describe distributed multiple documents from the perspective
               of their interactive generation. The paper adds three use cases
               to motivate the broad applicability of Va.Si.Li-Lab and its data

               Al-Tabari with span-based NEs, sentence-based topics, and span-based
               subtopics, thus creating the Tafsir Dataset with over 51,000 sentences,
               the first large-scale multi-task benchmark for CA. Next, we analyze
               our newly generated dataset, which we make open-source available,
               with current language models (lightweight BiLSTM, transformer-based
               MaChAmP) along a novel script compression method, thereby achieving

               this interdisciplinary work, we lay the foundations for future

               generic tasks among graduates/young professionals from three domains},
  abstract  = {Although Critical Online Reasoning (COR) is often viewed as a
               general competency (e.g. Alexander et al. 2016), studies have
               found evidence supporting their domain-specificity (Toplak et
               al. 2002). To investigate this assumption, we focus on commonalities
               and differences in textual preferences in solving COR-related
               tasks between graduates/young professionals from three domains.
               For this reason, we collected data by requiring participants to
               solve domain-specific (DOM-COR) and generic (GEN-COR) tasks in
               an authentic Internet-based COR performance assessment (CORA),
               allowing us to disentangle the assumed components of COR abilities.
               Here, we focus on GEN-COR to distinguish between different groups
               of graduates from the three disciplines in the context of generic
               COR tasks. We present a computational model for educationally
               relevant texts that combines features at multiple levels (lexical,
               syntactic, semantic). We use machine learning to predict domain-specific
               group membership based on documents consulted during task solving.
               A major contribution of our analyses is a multi-part text classification
               system that contrasts human annotation and rating of the documents
               used with a semi-automatic classification to predict the document
               type of web pages. That is, we work with competing classifications
               to support our findings. In this way, we develop a computational
               linguistic model that correlates GEN-COR abilities with properties
               of documents consulted for solving the GEN-COR tasks. Results
               show that participants from different domains indeed inquire different
               sets of online sources for the same task. Machine learning-based
               classifications show that the distributional differences can be
               reproduced by computational linguistic models.},

               in the language models generated by transformers. In this paper
               we utilize this research on biases to investigate to what extent
               transformer-based language models allow for extracting knowledge
               about object relations (X occurs in Y; X consists of Z; action
               A involves using X).To this end, we compare contextualized models
               with their static counterparts. We make this comparison dependent
               on the application of a number of similarity measures and classifiers.
               Our results are threefold:Firstly, we show that the models combined
               with the different similarity measures differ greatly in terms
               of the amount of knowledge they allow for extracting. Secondly,
               our results suggest that similarity measures perform much worse
               than classifier-based approaches. Thirdly, we show that, surprisingly,
               static models perform almost as well as contextualized models

               is 2.7 \% or 8.5 \%, depending on the admitted degree of potential

               CB Botafogo (1992) are important graph indices in applications
               of complex network theory to real-world problems. Here, for simple
               connected undirected graphs G of order n, we study the behavior
               of L(G) and CB(G), subject to the condition that their order |V(G)|
               approaches infinity. We prove that the limit of L(G)/n and CB(G)
               lies within the interval [0;1/3] and [2/3;1], respectively. Moreover,
               for any not necessarily rational number β ∈ [0;1/3] (α ∈ [2/3;1])
               we show how to construct the sequence of graphs {G}, |V(G)| =
               n → ∞, for which the limit of L(G)/n (CB(G)) is exactly β (α)
               (Theorems 1 and 2). Based on these results, our work points to
               novel classification possibilities of graphs at the node level
               as well as to the information-theoretic classification of the
               structural complexity of graph indices.},

  abstract  = {We test the hypothesis that the extent to which one obtains information
               on a given topic through Wikipedia depends on the language in
               which it is consulted. Controlling the size factor, we investigate
               this hypothesis for a number of 25 subject areas. Since Wikipedia
               is a central part of the web-based information landscape, this
               indicates a language-related, linguistic bias. The article therefore
               deals with the question of whether Wikipedia exhibits this kind
               of linguistic relativity or not. From the perspective of educational
               science, the article develops a computational model of the information
               landscape from which multiple texts are drawn as typical input
               of web-based reading. For this purpose, it develops a hybrid model
               of intra- and intertextual similarity of different parts of the
               information landscape and tests this model on the example of 35
               languages and corresponding Wikipedias. In the way it measures
               the similarities of hypertexts, the article goes beyond existing
               approaches by examining their structural and semantic aspects
               intra- and intertextually. In this way it builds a bridge between
               reading research, educational science, Wikipedia research and
               computational linguistics.},

  abstract  = {The storage of data in public repositories such as the Global
               Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) or the National Center
               for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) is nowadays stipulated in
               the policies of many publishers in order to facilitate data replication
               or proliferation. Species occurrence records contained in legacy
               printed literature are no exception to this. The extent of their
               digital and machine-readable availability, however, is still far
               from matching the existing data volume (Thessen and Parr 2014).
               But precisely these data are becoming more and more relevant to
               the investigation of ongoing loss of biodiversity. In order to
               extract species occurrence records at a larger scale from available
               publications, one has to apply specialised text mining tools.
               However, such tools are in short supply especially for scientific
               literature in the German language.The Specialised Information
               Service Biodiversity Research*1 BIOfid (Koch et al. 2017) aims
               at reducing this desideratum, inter alia, by preparing a searchable
               text corpus semantically enriched by a new kind of multi-label
               annotation. For this purpose, we feed manual annotations into
               automatic, machine-learning annotators. This mixture of automatic
               and manual methods is needed, because BIOfid approaches a new
               application area with respect to language (mainly German of the
               19th century), text type (biological reports), and linguistic
               focus (technical and everyday language).We will present current
               results of the performance of BIOfid’s semantic search engine
               and the application of independent natural language processing
               (NLP) tools. Most of these are freely available online, such as
               TextImager (Hemati et al. 2016). We will show how TextImager is
               tied into the BIOfid pipeline and how it is made scalable (e.g.
               extendible by further modules) and usable on different systems
               (docker containers).Further, we will provide a short introduction
               to generating machine-learning training data using TextAnnotator
               (Abrami et al. 2019) for multi-label annotation. Annotation reproducibility
               can be assessed by the implementation of inter-annotator agreement
               methods (Abrami et al. 2020). Beyond taxon recognition and entity
               linking, we place particular emphasis on location and time information.
               For this purpose, our annotation tag-set combines general categories
               and biology-specific categories (including taxonomic names) with
               location and time ontologies. The application of the annotation
               categories is regimented by annotation guidelines (Lücking et
               al. 2020). Within the next years, our work deliverable will be
               a semantically accessible and data-extractable text corpus of
               around two million pages. In this way, BIOfid is creating a new
               valuable resource that expands our knowledge of biodiversity and
               its determinants.},

  abstract  = {The TextAnnotator is a tool for simultaneous and collaborative
               annotation of texts with visual annotation support, integration
               of knowledge bases and, by pipelining the TextImager, a rich variety
               of pre-processing and automatic annotation tools. It includes
               a variety of modules for the annotation of texts, which contains
               the annotation of argumentative, rhetorical, propositional and
               temporal structures as well as a module for named entity linking
               and rapid annotation of named entities. Especially the modules
               for annotation of temporal, argumentative and propositional structures
               are currently unique in web-based annotation tools. The TextAnnotator,
               which allows the annotation of texts as a platform, is divided
               into a front- and a backend component. The backend is a web service
               based on WebSockets, which integrates the UIMA Database Interface
               to manage and use texts. Texts are made accessible by using the
               ResourceManager and the AuthorityManager, based on user and group
               access permissions. Different views of a document can be created
               and used depending on the scenario. Once a document has been opened,
               access is gained to the annotations stored within annotation views
               in which these are organized. Any annotation view can be assigned
               with access permissions and by default, each user obtains his
               or her own user view for every annotated document. In addition,
               with sufficient access permissions, all annotation views can also
               be used and curated. This allows the possibility to calculate
               an Inter-Annotator-Agreement for a document, which shows an agreement
               between the annotators. Annotators without sufficient rights cannot
               display this value so that the annotators do not influence each
               other. This contribution is intended to reflect the current state
               of development of TextAnnotator, demonstrate the possibilities
               of an instantaneous Inter-Annotator-Agreement and trigger a discussion
               about further functions for the community.},

  abstract  = {The annotation of texts and other material in the field of digital
               humanities and Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a common task
               of research projects. At the same time, the annotation of corpora
               is certainly the most time- and cost-intensive component in research
               projects and often requires a high level of expertise according
               to the research interest. However, for the annotation of texts,
               a wide range of tools is available, both for automatic and manual
               annotation. Since the automatic pre-processing methods are not
               error-free and there is an increasing demand for the generation
               of training data, also with regard to machine learning, suitable
               annotation tools are required. This paper defines criteria of
               flexibility and efficiency of complex annotations for the assessment
               of existing annotation tools. To extend this list of tools, the
               paper describes TextAnnotator, a browser-based, multi-annotation
               system, which has been developed to perform platform-independent
               multimodal annotations and annotate complex textual structures.
               The paper illustrates the current state of development of TextAnnotator
               and demonstrates its ability to evaluate annotation quality (inter-annotator
               agreement) at runtime. In addition, it will be shown how annotations
               of different users can be performed simultaneously and collaboratively
               on the same document from different platforms using UIMA as the
               basis for annotation.},

               Task for Lemmatization and Part-of-Speech (POS) tagging was published

               data, we trained several embeddings on better data in the first
               step. Based on these embeddings, we trained several state-of-the-art

               LSTMVoter. We were able to achieve the best results for both the

               and test them against the Capitularies corpus (comprising Frankish
               royal edicts, mid-6th to mid-9th century), a corpus created as
               a reference for processing Medieval Latin. We also consider the
               post-correction of lemmatizations using a limited crowdsourcing
               process aimed at continuous review and updating of the FLL. Starting
               from the texts resulting from this lemmatization process, we describe

  abstract  = {People's visual perception is very pronounced and therefore it
               is usually no problem for them to describe the space around them
               in words. Conversely, people also have no problems imagining a
               concept of a described space. In recent years many efforts have
               been made to develop a linguistic concept for spatial and spatial-temporal
               relations. However, the systems have not really caught on so far,
               which in our opinion is due to the complex models on which they
               are based and the lack of available training data and automated
               taggers. In this paper we describe a project to support spatial
               annotation, which could facilitate annotation by its many functions,
               but also enrich it with many more information. This is to be achieved
               by an extension by means of a VR environment, with which spatial
               relations can be better visualized and connected with real objects.
               And we want to use the available data to develop a new state-of-the-art
               tagger and thus lay the foundation for future systems such as
               improved text understanding for Text2Scene.},

               ordered sentences by detecting their beginnings and ends. Sentences,
               however, are more deeply structured even on this side of constituent
               and dependency structure: they can consist of a main sentence
               and several subordinate clauses as well as further segments (e.g.
               inserts in parentheses); they can even recursively embed whole
               sentences and then contain multiple sentence beginnings and ends.
               In this paper, we introduce a tool that segments sentences into
               tree structures to detect this type of recursive structure. To
               this end, we retrain different constituency parsers with the help
               of modified training data to transform them into sentence segmenters.
               With these segmenters, documents are mapped to sequences of sentence-related
               “logical document structures”. The resulting segmenters aim to
               improve downstream tasks by providing additional structural information.
               In this context, we experiment with German dependency parsing.
               We show that for certain sentence categories, which can be determined
               automatically, improvements in German dependency parsing can be
               achieved using our segmenter for preprocessing. The assumption
               suggests that improvements in other languages and tasks can be

               greatly improved by new developed End2End-approaches and transformer
               networks. The inclusion of CR as a pre-processing step is expected
               to lead to improvements in downstream tasks. The paper examines
               this effect with respect to word embeddings. That is, we analyze
               the effects of CR on six different embedding methods and evaluate
               them in the context of seven lexical-semantic evaluation tasks
               and instantiation/hypernymy detection. Especially in the last
               tasks we hoped for a significant increase in performance. We show
               that all word embedding approaches do not benefit significantly
               from pronoun substitution. The measurable improvements are only
               marginal (around 0.5\% in most test cases). We explain this result
               with the loss of contextual information, reduction of the relative
               occurrence of rare words and the lack of pronouns to be replaced.},

  abstract  = {At ever shorter intervals, new technologies are being developed
               that are opening up more and more areas of application. This regards,
               for example, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) devices.
               In addition to the private sector, the public and education sectors,
               which already make intensive use of these devices, benefit from
               these technologies. However, especially in the field of historical
               education, there are not many frameworks for generating immersive
               virtual environments that can be used flexibly enough. This chapter
               addresses this gap by means of VAnnotatoR. VAnnotatoR is a versatile
               framework for the creation and use of virtual environments that
               serve to model historical processes in historical education. The
               paper describes the building blocks of VAnnotatoR and describes
               applications in historical education.},

               text interpretation. As a point of reference, we focus on the
               complexity of educational texts. To open up a broader basis for
               representing phenomena of context sensitivity, we integrate a
               learning theory (i.e., the Cognitive Load Theory) with a theory
               of discourse comprehension (i.e., the Construction Integration
               Model) and a theory of cognitive semantics (i.e., the theory of
               Conceptual Spaces). The aim is to construct measures that view
               text complexity as a relational attribute by analogy to the relational
               concept of meaning in situation semantics. To this end, we reconstruct
               the situation semantic notion of relational meaning from the perspective
               of a computationally informed cognitive semantics. The aim is
               to prepare the development of measurements for predicting learning
               outcomes in the form of positive or negative learning. This prediction
               ideally depends on the underlying learning material, the learner's
               situational context, and knowledge retrieved from his or her long-term
               memory, which he or she uses to arrive at coherent mental representations
               of the underlying texts. Finally, our model refers to machine
               learning as a tool for modeling such memory content. In this way,
               the chapter integrates approaches from different disciplines (linguistic
               semantics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, and data
               science).},

               birds, moths and butterflies. Our work enables the automatic extraction

               how to optimize the hyperparameters of the classifiers involved.
               To this end, we utilize various algorithms for hyperparameter
               optimization. Finally, we present CRFVoter, a two-stage application

  abstract  = {Modern annotation tools should meet at least the following general
               requirements: they can handle diverse data and annotation levels
               within one tool, and they support the annotation process with
               automatic (pre-)processing outcomes as much as possible. We developed
               a framework that meets these general requirements and that enables
               versatile and browser-based annotations of texts, the TextAnnotator.
               It combines NLP methods of pre-processing with methods of flexible
               post-processing. Infact, machine learning (ML) requires a lot
               of training and test data, but is usually far from achieving perfect
               results. Producing high-level annotations for ML and post-correcting
               its results are therefore necessary. This is the purpose of TextAnnotator,
               which is entirely implemented in ExtJS and provides a range of
               interactive visualizations of annotations. In addition, it allows
               for flexibly integrating knowledge resources, e.g. in the course
               of post-processing named entity recognition. The paper describes
               TextAnnotator’s architecture together with three use cases: annotating
               temporal structures, argument structures and named entity linking.}

  abstract  = {Chemical and biomedical named entity recognition (NER) is an essential
               preprocessing task in natural language processing. The identification
               and extraction of named entities from scientific articles is also
               attracting increasing interest in many scientific disciplines.
               Locating chemical named entities in the literature is an essential
               step in chemical text mining pipelines for identifying chemical
               mentions, their properties, and relations as discussed in the
               literature. In this work, we describe an approach to the BioCreative
               V.5 challenge regarding the recognition and classification of
               chemical named entities. For this purpose, we transform the task
               of NER into a sequence labeling problem. We present a series of
               sequence labeling systems that we used, adapted and optimized
               in our experiments for solving this task. To this end, we experiment
               with hyperparameter optimization. Finally, we present LSTMVoter,
               a two-stage application of recurrent neural networks that integrates
               the optimized sequence labelers from our study into a single ensemble
               classifier.},

               learning of complex relationships between data objects need annotations
               to obtain sufficiently rich training and test sets. The visualization

               (HCI) are perennial problems of computer science. However, despite

               and the flexibility of the annotation process may decrease with
               the complexity of the underlying data objects and their relationships.
               In order to face this problem, the so-called VAnnotatoR was developed,
               as a flexible annotation tool using 3D glasses and augmented reality
               devices, which enables annotation and visualization in three-dimensional

               aspects of prose text. It aims to enable intuitive understanding
               through explorative data analysis of historical, especially bardic-oral
               texts.1 The assumption behind this is that bardic/born-oral and
               non-bardic/born-written texts differ drastically in the way they
               employ repetition. The ReAF in its first implementation, as presented
               here, is a language-independent tool that permits the visual exploration
               of such structures. Firstly, general aspects and formal characteristics
               of oral verse text are characterized, before the main technical
               details and some additional applications of the ReAF are explained
               and illustrated.},

               index originally introduced for measuring structural characteristics
               of hypermedia. Applying compactness to large scale small-world
               graphs (Mehler, 2008) observed its limit behaviour to be equal
               1. The striking question concerning this finding was whether this
               limit behaviour resulted from the specifics of small-world graphs
               or was simply an artefact. In this paper, we determine the necessary
               and sufficient conditions for any sequence of connected graphs
               resulting in a limit value of CB = 1 which can be generalized
               with some consideration for the case of disconnected graph classes
               (Theorem 3). This result can be applied to many well-known classes
               of connected graphs. Here, we illustrate it by considering four
               examples. In fact, our proof-theoretical approach allows for quickly
               obtaining the limit value of compactness for many graph classes
               sparing computational costs.},

               by a margin of up to 11\% in terms of F-score on the example of

               we gather all available resources and perform a detailed optimization

               (DDC), an international standard for topic classification in libraries.
               We introduce nnDDC, a largely language-independent neural network-based
               classifier for DDC-related topic classification, which we optimized
               using a wide range of linguistic features to achieve an F-score
               of 87.4\%. To show that our approach is language-independent,
               we evaluate nnDDC using up to 40 different languages. We derive
               a topic model based on nnDDC, which generates probability distributions
               over semantic units for any input on sense-, word- and text-level.
               Unlike related approaches, however, these probabilities are estimated
               by means of nnDDC so that each dimension of the resulting vector
               representation is uniquely labeled by a DDC class. In this way,
               we introduce a neural network-based Classifier-Induced Semantic
               Space (nnCISS).},

               modern literature and to offer a platform for open access journals
               on the science of biodiversity. Our team of librarians, computer
               scientists and biologists produce high-quality text digitizations,
               develop new text-mining tools and generate detailed ontologies
               enabling semantic text analysis and semantic search by means of
               user-specific queries. In a pilot project we focus on German publications
               on the distribution and ecology of vascular plants, birds, moths
               and butterflies extending back to the Linnaeus period about 250
               years ago. The three organism groups have been selected according
               to current demands of the relevant research community in Germany.
               The text corpus defined for this purpose comprises over 400 volumes
               with more than 100,000 pages to be digitized and will be complemented
               by journals from other digitization projects, copyright-free and
               project-related literature. With TextImager (Natural Language
               Processing & Text Visualization) and TextAnnotator (Discourse
               Semantic Annotation) we have already extended and launched tools
               that focus on the text-analytical section of our project. Furthermore,
               taxonomic and anatomical ontologies elaborated by us for the taxa
               prioritized by the project’s target group - German institutions
               and scientists active in biodiversity research - are constantly
               improved and expanded to maximize scientific data output. Our
               poster describes the general workflow of our project ranging from
               literature acquisition via software development, to data availability
               on the BIOfid web portal (http://biofid.de/), and the implementation
               into existing platforms which serve to promote global accessibility

               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.},

  abstract  = {This chapter develops a computational linguistic model 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
               response options) as well as languages (English and German), and
               network analysis to assess dependencies between features. The
               correlation between correct test results of students and linguistic
               features of the verbal presentations of tests indicate to what
               extent language influences higher education test performance.
               It has also been found that this influence relates to specialized
               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 questions.},

               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 of the activities of authors results in a correspondingly
               unequal distribution of the information units documented within
               the lexicon. The paper focuses on foundations for describing such
               systems starting from a parameter space which requires to deal
               with Wiktionary as an issue in big data analysis. In German: Der

               Netzwerke am Beispiel von Wiktionary. Ausgehend von einem netzwerktheoretischen
               Modell in Form so genannter Mehrebenennetzwerke wird Wiktionary
               als ein skalenfreies Lexikon beschrieben. Systeme dieser Art zeichnen
               sich dadurch aus, dass ihre inhaltliche Dynamik durch die zugrundeliegende
               Kollaborationsdynamik bestimmt wird, und zwar so, dass sich die
               soziale Struktur der entsprechenden inhaltlichen Struktur aufprägt.
               Dieser Auffassung gemäß führt die Ungleichverteilung der Aktivitäten
               von Lexikonproduzenten zu einer analogen Ungleichverteilung der
               im Lexikon dokumentierten Informationseinheiten. Der Beitrag thematisiert

               and textual relations to span multi-layer networks (linkification)
               that allow for browsing syntagmatic and paradigmatic relations
               among the constituents of its input texts. In this way, relations
               of text reuse can be explored together with lexical relations
               within the same literary memory information system. Beyond that,
               Wikidition contains a module for automatic lexiconisation to extract
               author specific vocabularies. Based on linkification and lexiconisation,
               Wikidition does not only allow for traversing input corpora on
               different (lexical, sentential and textual) levels. Rather, its
               readers can also study the vocabulary of authors on several levels
               of resolution including superlemmas, lemmas, syntactic words and
               wordforms. We exemplify Wikidition by a range of literary texts
               and evaluate it by means of the apparatus of quantitative network
               analysis.},

  abstract  = {The number of multilingual texts in the World Wide Web (WWW) is
               increasing dramatically and a multilingual economic zone like
               the European Union (EU) requires the availability of multilingual
               Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools. Due to a rapid development
               of NLP tools, many lexical, syntactic, semantic and other linguistic
               features have been used in different NLP applications. However,
               there are some situations where these features can not be used
               due the application type or unavailability of NLP resources for
               some of the languages. That is why an application that is intended
               to handle multilingual texts must have features that are not dependent
               on a particular language and specific linguistic tools. In this
               thesis, we will focus on two such applications: text readability
               and source and translation classification. In this thesis, we
               provide 18 features that are not only suitable for both applications,
               but are also language and linguistic tools independent. In order
               to build a readability classifier, we use texts from three different
               languages: English, German and Bangla. Our proposed features achieve
               a classification accuracy that is comparable with a classifier
               using 40 linguistic features. The readability classifier achieves
               a classification F-score of 74.21\% on the English Wikipedia corpus,
               an F-score of 75.47\% on the English textbook corpus, an F-score
               of 86.46\% on the Bangla textbook corpus and an F-score of 86.26\%
               on the German GEO/GEOLino corpus. We used more than two million
               sentence pairs from 21 European languages in order to build the
               source and translation classifier. The classifier using the same
               eighteen features achieves a classification accuracy of 86.63\%.
               We also used the same features to build a classifier that classifies
               translated texts based on their origin. The classifier achieves
               classification accuracy of 75\% for texts from 10 European languages.
               In this thesis, we also provide four different corpora, three
               for text readability analysis and one for corpus based translation
               studies.}

               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.},

               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.},

               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 evaluation for automatically produced archetypes.
               We compare a philologically generated archetype with one generated
               by bio-informatic software.},

  abstract  = {This paper provides a theoretical assessment of gestures in the
               context of authoring image-related 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 based on full-fledged
               gestural writing.},

  abstract  = {Currently, a large number of different lexica is available for
               English. However, substantial and freely 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 collection of named entities. In this paper, we describe
               a procedure to generate such a resource by example of English.
               This lexicon, henceforth called ColLex.EN (for Collecting Lexica
               for English ), will be made freely available to the public 1.
               In this paper, we describe how ColLex.EN was collected from existing
               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
               automatically generated with low effort.},

               Firstly, it is argued that symbol grounding in general has to
               be instrinsic. Current approaches in this context, however, are
               limited to a certain kind of expression that can be grounded in
               this way. Secondly, we identify three requirements for conversational
               grounding, the process leading to mutual understanding. Finally,
               we sketch a test case for symbol grounding in the form of the
               philosophical grounding problem that involves the use of modal
               language. Together, the three grounding problems provide a grid

  abstract  = {Machine translation systems always struggle 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 system.},

  abstract  = {This thesis bridges between two scientific fields -- 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.},

               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. The Avestan language
               and some of its idiosyncratic features are explored in order to
               illuminate how the proposed index is applied in the ranking of
               texts according to their repetitiveness.},

  abstract  = {‘Avestan’ is the name of the ritual language of 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 out here.},

               language processing. Automatic synonym extraction methods have
               in common that they are either applied on the surface representation
               of the text or on a syntactical structure derived from it. In
               this paper, however, we present a semantic synonym extraction
               approach that operates directly on semantic networks (SNs), which
               were derived from text by a deep syntactico-semantic analysis.
               Synonymy hypotheses are extracted from the SNs by graph matching.
               These hypotheses are then validated by a support vector machine
               (SVM) employing a combined graph and string kernel. Our method
               was compared to several other approaches and the evaluation has
               shown that our results are considerably superior},

               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.},

               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.},

  abstract  = {The Naming Game (NG) has become a vivid research 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 non-compositional manner.},

               (LD) Toolkit. The Lexicon Expander post-processes the output of
               the LD Toolkit which leads to the improvement of f-score and accuracy
               values. Furthermore, the functionality of the Lexicon Expander

  abstract  = {Currently, some simulative accounts exist within 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 complexity
               level of simulation models of linguistic categorization can be
               assessed in linguistic terms.},

               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 indices.},

               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.},

               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

               of the interplay of single linguistic phenomena observed in language.},

  abstract  = {In this thesis we analyze the performance of social semantics
               in textual information retrieval. By means of collaboratively
               constructed knowledge derived from 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. Which kind of technologies and methods
               are available, adequate and contribute to the processing of this
               rapidly rising flood of information and at the same time being
               capable of using the wealth of information 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 question,
               to which level social networks and social ontologies contribute
               to selected areas within the information retrieval area, such
               as automatically determining term and text associations, identifying
               topics, text and web genre categorization, and also the domain
               of sentiment analysis. We will show in extensive evaluations,
               comparing the classical apparatus of text categorization -- Vector
               Space Model, Latent Semantic Analysis and Support Vector Maschine
               -- that significant improvements can be obtained by considering
               the collaborative knowledge derived from the social web.},

               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.},

               Markovian Trees (MSMTs). The idea behind MSMTs is to provide spanning
               trees that minimize the costs of edge traversals in a Markovian
               manner, that is, in terms of the path starting with the root of
               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

               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.},

  abstract  = {Ontologies are utilized for a wide range of tasks, 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.},

               texts by text mining. Usually these approaches are based on supervised
               learning and in a 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 representation or a syntactical tree
               structure, i.e., constituency or dependency trees derived by a
               syntactical parser. In this work, however, we present an approach
               that operates directly on a semantic network (SN), which is generated
               by a deep syntactico-semantic analysis. Hyponym/hypernym pairs
               are then extracted by the application of graph matching. This
               algorithm is combined with a shallow approach enriched with semantic
               information.},

               die Medienwissenschaft darstellt, resultiert nicht nur aus der
               ungeheuren 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 wir also, wie das schon seit l{\"a}ngerem
               k{\"u}hn vorhergesagt wird, vor der Etablierung eines Universalmediums,
               das in der Lage ist, die Formen und Funktionen anderer Medien

               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.},

               namely semiotic alignment. Communicative elements from different

               call multimodal ensembles. Computational models of human communication
               are in need of expressive models of multimodal ensembles. In this

               model of multimodal dialogue that is expressive enough to capture
               multimodal ensembles. In line with this model, we define a novel

               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

               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 on shallow patterns alone.},

  abstract  = {Purpose: We present a topic classification model using 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.},

               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.},

               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.},

               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

  abstract  = {In any real world application scenario, natural language generation
               (NLG) systems have to employ grammars consisting of tremendous
               amounts of rules. Detecting and fixing errors in such grammars
               is therefore a highly tedious task. In this work we 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].},

               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 discuss a shared set of genre categories

  abstract  = {The Word Wide Web is a continuous challenge to machine 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 learning.},

               notion of a naming game (Steels, 1996). The simulation model integrates
               a small world-like agent community which restricts agent communication.

               to simulate terminological alignment based on lexical priming.

               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

               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

               der Bedeutungen von Texten. Den Ausgangspunkt der {\"U}berlegungen
               zur Konnotation des Textes bildet die Auffassung, wonach Wort-
               und Textbedeutungskonstitution Ergebnis eines zirkul{\"a}ren Prozesses
               sind, der für die Emergenz einer Hierarchie ineinander geschachtelter
               Spracheinheiten verantwortlich zeichnet. Der Proze{\ss} der Zeichenartikulation
               erfolgt entlang dieser Ebenen und erzeugt durch Verbindung von
               (konnotativer) Inhalts- und Ausdrucksseite auf Textebene das Textzeichen.
               Im Gegensatz zu einer strikten Interpretation des Fregeschen Kompositionalit{\"a}tsprinzips,
               derzufolge die Bedeutungen sprachlicher Einheiten als fixierte,
               kontextfreie Grö{\ss}en vorauszusetzen sind, behandelt der vorliegende
               Ansatz bereits die lexikalische Bedeutung als Grö{\ss}e, die in
               Abh{\"a}ngigkeit von ihrem Kontext variieren kann. Aus semiotischer
               Perspektive ist es vor allem der Gestaltcharakter, welcher die
               konnotative Textbedeutung einer Anwendung des FregePrinzips entzieht.
               Anders ausgedrückt: Die konnotative Bedeutung eines Textes ist
               keineswegs in eine Struktur 'atomarer' Repr{\"a}sentationen zerlegbar.
               Die hierarchische Organisation von Texten erweist sich insofern
               als komplex, als ihre Bedeutungen aus einem zirkul{\"a}ren Proze{\ss}
               resultieren, der best{\"a}tigend und/oder ver{\"a}ndernd auf die
               Bedeutungen der Textkonstituenten einwirkt. Diese Zirkularit{\"a}t
               bedingt, da{\ss} Texte nicht nur als Orte der Manifestation von
               Wortbedeutungsstrukturen anzusehen sind, sondern zugleich als
               Ausgangspunkte für die Modifikation und Emergenz solcher Strukturen
               dienen. Im folgenden wird unter Rekurs auf den Kopenhagener Strukturalismus
               ein Modell der konnotativen Bedeutung von Texten entwickelt, das
               sich unter anderem an dem glossematischen Begriff der Konstante
               orientiert. Die Formalisierung des Modells erfolgt mit Hilfe des
               Konzeptes der unscharfen Menge. Zu diesem Zweck werden die unscharfen
               Verwendungsregularit{\"a}ten von Wörtern auf der Basis eines zweistufigen
               Verfahrens analysiert, welches die syntagmatischen und paradigmatischen
               Regularit{\"a}ten des Wortgebrauches berücksichtigt. Die Rolle
               der Satzebene innerhalb des Prozesses der konnotativen Textbedeutungskonstitution
               wird angedeutet. Abschlie{\ss}end erfolgt eine Exemplifizierung
               des Algorithmus anhand der automatischen Analyse eines Textcorpus.},

               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

               (NLG) to map non-linguistic input onto a derivation tree from
               which the target text can be 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 input subtrees to grammar categories
               by cross-validating grammar rules with the given input structures.
               The method also detects and corrects the usage of a category in
               a grammar rule. The result is implemented in a grammar development
               workbench and accelerates the grammar writer's work considerably.
               The paper suggests the algorithms can be ported to other areas

  abstract  = {This paper describes the application of machine 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.},

  abstract  = {We conducted a two-part study that contributes to the discussion
               about cervical auscultation (CA) as a scientifically justifiable
               and medically useful tool to identify patients with a high risk
               of aspiration/penetration. We sought to determine (1) acoustic
               features that mark a deglutition act as dysphagic; (2) acoustic
               changes in healthy older deglutition profiles compared with those
               of younger adults; (3) the correctness and concordance of rater
               judgments based on CA; and (4) if education in CA improves individual
               reliability. The first part of the study focused on a comparison
               of the swallow morphology 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.},

               structure or layout (Brinker, 1992; Bateman 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.},

               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.},

  abstract  = {Hypertext categorization is the task of automatically assigning
               category labels to hypertext units. Comparable to text categorization
               it stays in the area of function learning based on the bag-of-features
               approach. This scenario faces the problem of a many-to-many relation
               between websites and their hidden logical document structure.
               The paper argues that this relation is a prevalent characteristic
               which interferes any effort of applying the classical apparatus
               of categorization to web genres. This is confirmed by a threefold
               experiment in hypertext categorization. In order to outline a
               solution to this problem, the paper sketches an alternative method
               of unsupervised learning which aims at bridging the gap between
               statistical and structural pattern recognition (Bunke et al. 2001)
               in the area of web mining.},

  abstract  = {Most known methods for measuring the structural 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 representing web-based documents.},

               yield. Such grammars may consist of a large number of rules. Finding

               the generation fails because the relevant input subtree is not
               specified correctly. This work describes a method to detect and
               correct wrong assignments of input subtrees to grammar categories
               by cross-validating grammar rules with the given input structures.
               The result is implemented in a grammar development workbench and
               helps accelerating the grammar writer's work considerably.},

               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.},

  abstract  = {Technology is the most important thing that involve in our everyday
               life. It is involving in almost every aspect of life like communication,
               work, shopping, recreation etc. Communication through mobile devices
               is the most effective and easy way now a day. It is faster, easier
               and you can communicate whenever you want from any-where. Mobile
               messaging or short message service is one of the popular ways
               to communicate using mobile devices. It is a big challenge to
               write and display Bangla characters on mobile devices. In this
               paper, we describe a Bangla text input method and rendering support
               on mobile devices for short message service.},
