Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1986

A natural language understanding system is described which extracts contextual information from Japanese texts. It integrates syntactic, semantic and contextual processing serially. The syntactic analyzer obtains rough syntactic structures from the text. The semantic analyzer treats modifying relations inside noun phrases and case relations among verbs and noun phrases. Then, the contextual analyzer obtains contextual information from the semantic structure extracted by the semantic analyzer. Our system understands the context using preceded contextual knowledge on terrorism and plugs the event information in input sentences into the contextual structure.
