Article
Androhungen schwerer, zielgerichteter Gewalt durch (ehemalige) Schülerinnen und Schüler stellen seit einigen Jahren ein wachsendes Problem an deutschen Schulen dar, mit dem sich Lehrkräfte verstärkt auseinandersetzen müssen. Die Aufklärung zur Entstehung dieses Phänomens sowie der professionelle Umgang mit der Problematik nehmen daher einen hohen S...

Mit dem Ziel, die Kompetenzen von Hochschullehrenden für den didaktisch motivierten Einsatz digitaler Medien und Technologien in der Hochschullehre zu fördern, gibt es an vielen deutschen Universitäten und Hochschulen Qualifzierungsangebote, die aktuell unter dem Label des E-Teaching angeboten werden. Im Rahmen dieser Weiterbildungen lernen Lehrend...
Article
Full-text available
This thesis addresses the question of discourse marker choice in automatic (multilingual) text generation (MLG), in particular the issue of signaling temporal coherence relations on the linguistic surface by means of discourse markers such as nachdem, als, bevor . Current text generation systems do not pay attention to the fine-grained differences...
Article
Full-text available
Discourse markers are an important means to signal the kind of coherence relation holding between adjacent text spans. Research on generating discourse markers has been mainly concerned with causal markers, whereas temporal markers have not received much attention. In this paper, we identify semantic, pragmatic and syntactic features that axe requi...
Article
Full-text available
In text, discourse markers signal the kind of coherence relation holding between adjacent text spans; for example, because, since,' and/'or t/is reason are different' markers for causal relations.
Article
Full-text available
This article is concerned with determining the constraints on the selection of appropriate intonation in speech generation in humanmachine information seeking dialogues. The two pillars of our system---a state-of-theart computational dialogue model and a state-of-the-art NL generator---are presented. Based on this, we determine the kinds of linguis...
Article
Full-text available
this paper, we describe an initial realization of such a cooperative and efficient mixed initiative dialogue system. In particular, we discuss system utterances whose primary goal is to acquire information of various kinds, since these occur frequently in our do- main. Building on results in (Hagen 1997), we develop heuristics for jointly expressin...
Article
When making decisions, access to information and proactive provision of information have become a business imperative. It can be expected that a tremendous amount of information needs can be satisfied much better today by what is offered in information networks, be it the Internet or a corporate intranet for knowledge management purposes. Yet there...
Article
This paper describes a computational grammar of the German prepositional phrase (PP). On the basis of a thorough linguistic analysis of PP-related phenomena and their functional classification, I will develop a comprehensive German phrase rank grammar, exploiting functional similarities between German and English as much as possible. In my function...
Conference Paper
Preventive quality management (PQM) is a very information-intensive task. Information as diverse as customer requirements, material specifications, and production line characteristics of a product as well as complaints related to similar products have to be taken into consideration when, e.g., predicting and evaluating possible failure modes of a p...
Article
Full-text available
In text, temporal relations between events can be signalled in several ways; among them are specific lexical items, here called temporal discourse markers. We analyse the semantics of about 20 German subordinating conjunctions and prepositions and transfer these findings to a sentence generation framework that uses a dedicated discourse marker lexi...
Article
Full-text available
In text, discourse markers signal the kind of coherence relation holding between adjacent text spans; for example, because, since, and for this reason are different markers for causal relations. For any but the most simple applications of text generation, marker selection is an important aspect of producing cohesive text. However, present systems u...
Article
Full-text available
. The present paper discusses speech production from the perspective of NL (natural language) generation in the context of dialogue, focusing on the selection of appropriate intonation. Bringing forward arguments from functional linguistics, we present a model of communicativecontext -to-speech as an alternative to text-to-speech and concept-to-spe...
Chapter
A great part of the product knowledge in manufacturing enterprises is only available in the form of natural language documents. The know-how recorded in these documents is an essential resource for successful competition in the market. From the viewpoint of knowledge management, however, documents have a severe limitation: They do not capture the w...

Full-text available
. This article discusses speech production in dialogue from the perspective of natural language generation, focusing on the selection of appropriate intonation. We argue that in order to assign appropriate intonation contours in speech producing systems, it is vital to acknowledge the diversity of functions that intonation fulfills and to account f...
Article
Full-text available
In order to generate cohesive discourse, many of the relations holding between text segments need to be signalled to the reader by means of cue words, or discourse markers. Programs usually do this in a simplistic way, e.g., by using one marker per relation. In reality, however, language offers a very wide range of markers from which informed choic...
Article
The current article discusses the problem of appropriate intonation selection in Person-Machine dialogues, such as those expected in intelligent information systems when, for example, information retrieval is required. An approach is proposed which integrates the previously mostly separate paradigms of automatic natural language generation and spee...
