Title Can Computers Handle Adverbs?
Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1992

The adverb is the most complicated, and perhaps also the most interesting part of speech. Past research in natural language processing, however, has not dealt seriously with adverbs, though linguists have done significant work on this word class. The current paper draws on this linguistic research to organize an adverbial lexicon which will be useful for information retrieval and natural language processing systems.
