In this paper, we present a hybrid Chi- nese language model based on a com- bination of ontology with statistical method. In this study, we determined the structure of such a Chinese lan- guage model. This structure is firstly comprised of an ontology description framework for Chinese words and a representation of Chinese lingual on- tology knowledge. Subsequently, a Chinese lingual ontology knowledge bank is automatically acquired by de- termining, for each word, its co- occurrence with semantic, pragmatics, and syntactic information from the training corpus and the usage of Chi- nese words will be gotten from lingual ontology knowledge bank for a actual document. To evaluate the performance of this language model, we completed two groups of experiments on texts re- ordering for Chinese i...
