Abstract
Reports on an exploratory study of the semantic interpretation of conjuncts and their translation into Boolean search statements, using dictionary definitions. Rules were formulated based on syntactic and semantic analysis of the conjunctive phrases occuring in 160 natural language statements (NLS) of users information needs. This includes a set of transformational rules to accomodate variations in natural language expressions. Evaluation of the rules to accomodate variations in natural language expressions. Evaluation of the rules was performed by matching the output of the algorithm with the search formulation done by an expert online searcher. It resulted in an 81% match rate
