Natural Language Processing and XML Retrieval

Woodley, Alan P., Tannier, Xavier, Hassler, Marcus, & Geva, Shlomo (2006) Natural Language Processing and XML Retrieval. In Cavedon, Lawrence & Zukerman, Ingrid (Eds.) Australian Language Technology Workshop, 30/11/07 - 1/12/2007, Sydney.


XML information retrieval (XML-IR) systems respond to user queries with results more specific than documents. XML-IR queries contain both content and structural requirements traditionally expressed in a formal language. However, an intuitive alternative is natural language queries (NLQs). Here, we discuss three approaches for handling NLQs in an XMLIR system that are comparable to, and even outperform formal language queries.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
