Generating Conceptually Aligned Texts

Hardcastle, David and Power, Richard (2008). Generating Conceptually Aligned Texts. Technical Report 2008/06; Department of Computing, The Open University.



A conceptually aligned text is one in which spans are systematically linked to a logical encoding of their meanings. We describe the model of alignment used in WYSIWYM systems, which support knowledge editing through an automatically generated feedback text, and show that this model has a series of practical advantages through which it can support applications requiring semantic interac-tivity and inference, as envisaged by the Semantic Web community. Some results from an efficient recent implementation are presented, showing the benefits of having all levels of linguistic description available for interactive services.
