Understanding

. phrase. or sentence.What is natural language understanding?   For each word. there is a way to derive its canonical meaning representation? From the meaning representation the associated information and their relations can be accessed.

Why is conceptual processing so hard?  Ambiguities  Speechtextconcept  Semantic opaqueness   Lexicalized concepts:白宮、紅火蟻 Construction meaning and ellipses:我大你三歲  我的年紀比你的年紀大三歲   Metaphors:兩軍廝殺激烈。(Sport? Chess?) Background knowledge: 雞兔同籠 .

. A lexical knowledge representation systems with semantic composition and decomposition capabilities is the first step toward conceptual processing and understanding by computers.

Lexical Knowledge Representation Lexical knowledge Early works E-HowNet  .

Lexical knowledge representation  Words : the smallest meaningful units of a language serve as indices to access various knowledge.  Word : sense1 : grammatical functions semantic knowledge world knowledge sense2 : … sense3 : … .

Sense Representation  WordNet approach : A synset is a set of words with the same part-ofspeech and refer to the same concept.  . “ 4-wheeled.  A synset is described by a gloss. usually propelled by an internal combustion engine”. Synsets can be related to each other by semantic relations.

Disadvantages    No information regarding conceptual differences between different synsets Do not provide mechanisms for semantic composition No information for unknown words .

.HowNet :  HowNet describes the following conceptual relations﹕       (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) Hypernymy 上下位關係 Synonymy 同義關係 Antonymy 反義關係 Attribute-host 屬性-宿主關係 Part-whole 部件-整體關係 Event-role事件-角色關係  HowNet uses about 2000 primitives to define concepts.

Verbs Objects vs. nouns  Words of same semantic class hold particular syntactic properties. Nouns Values (values of attributes) vs. State verbs. .Four major semantic types  Semantic classification may cross pos classification. Nouns Attributes (relations) vs.     Events (acts) vs.

Attributes  Attribute (relation) nouns do not function as modifiers of objects.  e. (Ref: 劉春卉著 現代漢語屬 性範疇研究 巴蜀書社出版。) . *重量|weight + object  Attribute nouns occur only at positions of Np head.g.

Values  Values associate with respective attributes and lead to identify semantic relations. 紅|red 酒|wine color  三兩|3 ounce 肉|meat weight  陳|old 酒|wine 快|fast 車|car Speed Telic={move|移動} Time Agentive={produce|製造} .

Step 1: Identify semantic relation between A and B to derive relation(A)={B}. B is a modifier or an argument of A.e. i. Note: the possible semantic relations are shown in Table 1.Analytic Morphology    If a morpheme (word) B is a dependency daughter of morpheme (word) A. Step 2: Unify the semantic representation of A and B by inserting relation(A)={B} as sub-feature of A to derive {A|relation(A)={B}}. one一 def: quantity={1} + bowl碗 def: container={bowl|碗}  one bowl一碗 def: container={bowl|碗:quantity={1}}  this這def: quantifier={definite|定指} + 本copy def:{null}  this copy這本 def: quantifier={definite|定指}  . then unify the semantic representation of A and B by the following steps.
