Bracketing Compound Nouns for Logic Form Derivation

Vasile Rus, Dan I. Moldovan, and Orest Bolohan

We present here a method for bracketing coordinated compound nouns in the larger context of deriving first order logic forms. The method consists of two phases: (1) detection - extract candidate compound nouns from a parse tree and (2) interpretation - provide a bracketing solution for each candidate. Bracketing performance on 525 coordinations is 87.42%. This compares favorably with a 52.35% baseline when a default split by the coordination is applied.
