THE APPLICATION OF ENGLISH-WORD MORPHOLOGY TO AUTOMATIC INDEXING AND EXTRACTING. ANNUAL SUMMARY REPORT.
DOLBY, J.L.; AND OTHERS
THE STUDY IS CONCERNED WITH THE LINGUISTIC PROBLEM INVOLVED IN TEXT COMPRESSION--EXTRACTING, INDEXING, AND THE AUTOMATIC CREATION OF SPECIAL-PURPOSE CITATION DICTIONARIES. IN SPITE OF EARLY SUCCESS IN USING LARGE-SCALE COMPUTERS TO AUTOMATE CERTAIN HUMAN TASKS, THESE PROBLEMS REMAIN AMONG THE MOST DIFFICULT TO SOLVE. ESSENTIALLY, THE PROBLEM IS TO IDENTIFY A DISTINGUISHED SUBSET OF THE SENTENCES OF A GIVEN TEXT BY A COMPUTABLE ALGORITHM. THE FIRST QUESTION TO BE ANSWERED IS WHETHER THESE SENTENCES HAVE ANY COMMON LINGUISTIC CHARACTERISTICS. AN ALGORITHM OF SOME SORT EXISTS IN GENERAL BUT A PARTICULAR EXPERIMENT WILL PROVIDE ONLY INFORMATION ABOUT ALGORITHMS OF A GIVEN TYPE. THEREFORE THE PRESENT STUDY IS CONFINED TO ALGORITHMS BASED ON THE SET OF CHARACTERISTICS RELATED TO THE SYNTACTIC STRUCTURE OF ENGLISH SENTENCES. A DESCRIPTION OF THE PART-OF-SPEECH STRUCTURE OF ENGLISH WORDS IS GIVEN. THE EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT THE CRUCIAL FACTOR IS PROPER DETERMINATION OF THE ROLE PLAYED BY AFFIXES.
