[Outline of current research]
Research theme: Construction of Lexical Semantic System and Its Application.
In order to realize robust natural language processing models on computer, how to describe linguistic knowledge, especially word meanings, should be revealed. In this research, we try to construct a lexical semantic system that based on theoretical lexical semantics considering the application of the lexical semantics into a practical analysis model on natural language processing. The feedback of the application to a practical model helps to refine the theoretical semantic system with clear perspective.
