Talk at Yandex

On February 16 by kind invitation of the Yandex research team I held a talk in Moscow on Constructional syntactic analysis for information access tasks.


I talked about experiments to use non-terminological information to find attitudinal expressions in written English text. The experiments are based on an analysis of text with respect to not only the vocabulary of content terms present in it (which most other approaches use as a basis for analysis) but also with respect to presence of structural features of the text represented by constructional features (typically disregarded by most other analyses).


Slides are here. Weather was nippy.
