XML Semantic Schema Annotation for Dependency Relationships

Mihaela Colhon


This paper shows that a semantic network structure, named

semantic schema, can be used for adequate representation of the syntactic dependency relations existing between the words of a natural language phrase. Such a structure can be further used in various NLP applications that make use of the words interactions inside a phrase. It is also described a wrapper program, that, as a proof of concept, converts the output data of a dependency parser (MINIPAR parser) into semantic schema XML format.
