Automated Language Analysis 1967-1968: Report on Research for the Period March 1, 1967-Feb 29, 1968.
Sedelow, Sally Y.
This report describes current research associated with the Automated Language Analysis Project at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The focus of the research is upon the delineation of patterns formed in the linguistic coding of information; this delineation is called stylistic analysis. The report describes research on thesauri, especially research upon comparisons of possible input thesauri, upon methods of enlarging input thesauri and upon the possible use of input thesauri for the resolution of semantic ambiguity. The report also describes a new ring-structure version of the VIA Program which produces text-specific thesauri. Work on statistical approaches to the analysis of strings is also described. The report contains extensive documentation for the PL/1 implementations of the VIA Program, as well as a description of the program design for the ring-structure version of VIA. (Author/FWB)
