The only natural language processing I do is when I eat alphabet soup.
*lol*!!! Alphabet soup is yummy, I’d rather be ‘processing’ that.
What sort of information do you need? I’ve just been doing computer applications in linguistics and used programs for concordancing texts etc.. etc… which basically relates to natural language processing..
It’s technically simple stuff but obviously you have to know Prolog and understand it and all.. But its the whole sentence –> noun_phrase, verb_phrase, [.]. things and we basically need to extend the grammar (that we’re already given) to handle simple semantics and define additional predicates as needed to determine the travel distance and duration for each of Peter, Sarah and Mary.
ie. travelstatistics(DP, TP, DM, TM, DS, TS, [peter, is, in, bondi, ., peter, goes, to, coogee, ., peter, drives, to, alexandria, .])?
DP = 15
TP = 70
DM = 0
TM = 0
DS = 0
TS = 0
DP is Distance of Peter, TP is Time of Peter, etc.. and we’re given a table of distances and stuff that I assume we have to ‘hard code’ in.
So what we have to do is finish off the existing code structure so that it’ll spit ou the total distance travelled and total time taken for each of the 3 people.. done anything like that before? I certainly haven’t! :T
Try http://www.comp.lancs.ac.uk/ucrel/ and see if they’re any help.. got heaps of links to concordancing and Prolog, Wordnet etc..
Ooh looks like a great resource! I’m off to bed now but I’ll check it out more tomorrow.. thanks for the tip 🙂

Heh. I can only remember really basic stuff from year 12. I don’t think that’s gonna help. — Amelia
Yeah me too.. I feel like I need a good dose of computing-related brain cells!
*lol* I echo that!
