Semiautomatic Disabbreviation of Technical Text.
Rowe, Neil C.; Laitinen, Kari
Information Processing & Management, v31 n6 p851-57 Nov 1995
Describes a software tool that deciphers abbreviations by finding whole-word equivalents or "disabbreviations." Presents results of experimental studies that test the tool's disabbreviation of technical text in computer programs. Findings show that the prototype tool is easy to use, finds correct disabbreviations, improves text comprehensibility, and reduces software maintenance costs. (Author/JMV)
