Article
The purpose of this research is to build an ontology of the masters appearing in the Babylonian Talmud (BT). The ontology built so far has been shared as a Linked Open Data and it will be linked to existing vocabularies. This work has been developed in the context of the Babylonian Talmud Translation Project, where more than eighty Talmudists are w...

Nell’ambito del Progetto Traduzione del Talmud Babilonese, l’Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale del CNR ha sviluppato Traduco, uno strumento web collaborativo con alcune caratteristiche che lo rendono particolarmente adatto alla traduzione di testi che pongono problemi interpretativi. Ad oggi, gli strumenti per la traduzione assistita (in ingle...
Article
Traduco is a web-based collaborative tool aimed at supporting the translation of texts that pose particular challenging interpretative issues. Nowadays, Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools are mainly applied to the translation of technical manuals or legislative texts and are aimed at speeding up the translation process. Traduco extends most...

In this contribution we illustrate the methodology and the results of an experiment we conducted by applying Distributional Semantics Models to the analysis of the Holy Quran. Our aim was to gather information on the potential differences in meanings that the same words might take on when used in Modern Standard Arabic w.r.t. their usage in the Qur...

La comunità delle Digital Humanities sta diventando sempre più inclusiva, non solo nei confronti di gruppi di ricerca in ambito computazionale, ma anche nei confronti delle comunità che praticano le discipline umanistiche con metodi non digitali, con le quali nel passato c'era un difetto di comunicazione. Grazie a questo dialogo ritrovato, è necess...

One of the main challenges of the DH community is to provide suitable software models and tools. To model the literary domain and the relative user requirements, we chose to follow the engineering principles of object-oriented analysis and design. The digital representation of a textual resource is a challenge as it involves several theoretical and...

The article presents the adaptation of the lemon model (a model for lexica as RDF data) for a multilingual and multi-alphabetical lexicon of Old Occitan medico-botanical terminology. The lexicon is the core component of an ontology-based information system that will be constructed and implemented within the DFG-funded project “Dictionnaire des Term...

This paper describes the full procedure adopted in the context of the Clavius on the Web project, which aims to help Web users to appraise the importance of specific manuscripts by going beyond their digital reproduction. The proposed approach is based on the multilayered explication of linguistic, lexical and semantic data representing the innermo...

This paper introduces the main features of Traduco, a Web-based, collaborative Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tool developed to support the translation of ancient texts. In addition to the standard components offered by traditional CAT tools, Traduco includes a number of features designed to ease the translation of ancient texts, such as the B...
Conference Paper
This article discusses a possible approach combining existing technologies for Natural Language Processing (NLP), Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR) and Data Visualization in a coherent Decision Support System (DSS) aimed to formulate and verify specific interpretative hypotheses about a certain text. The approach chosen for developing th...
Conference Paper
In the last few years the amount of manuscripts digitized and made available on the Web has been constantly increasing. However, there is still a considarable lack of results concerning both the explicitation of their content and the tools developed to make it available. The objective of the Clavius on the Web project is to develop a Web platform e...
Conference Paper
In this paper we show how semantic technologies can be exploited, with the help of user friendly interfaces, to identify and structure the knowledge embedded in literary texts. The proposed approach, that we have called Content Elicitation, supports the experts in defining hierarchical and associative relationships between semantically annotated ch...
Conference Paper
Although Ferdinand de Saussure’s work has been disseminated all over the world, his thought was mainly reconstructed and interpreted by his students and disciples. His authentic writings are however of paramount importance as they highlight the complexity of the philosophical and semiological system Saussure developed and the attention he payed to...

Bien que l’œuvre de Ferdinand de Saussure ait été diffusée à travers le monde, sa pensée a été en grande partie reconstruite et interprétée par ses étudiants et disciples. Ses écrits authentiques revêtent pourtant, de notre point de vue, une importance fondamentale : ils mettent en lumière l’attention que Saussure accorde à la terminologie linguist...

In this work we propose a hybrid unsupervised approach for semantic relation extraction from Italian and English texts. The system takes as input pairs of "distributionally similar" terms, possibly involved in a semantic relation. To validate and label the anonymous relations holding between the terms in input, the candidate pairs of terms are look...
Article
Querying geographical information systems has been recognized as a difficult task for non-expert users. Furthermore, user queries are often characterized by semantic aspects not directly managed by traditional spatial databases or GIS. Examples of such semantic geospatial queries are the use of implicit spatial relations between objects, or the ref...

Semantic annotation of text requires the dynamic merging of linguisticall y structured information and a "world model", usually represented as a domain-specific ontology. On the other hand, the process of engineering a domain ontology through semi-automatic ontology learning system requires the availability of a considerable amount of semantically...

We describe here a methodology to combine two different techniques for Semantic Relation Extraction from texts. On the one hand, generic lexico- syntactic patterns are applied to the linguistically analyzed corpus to detect a first set of pairs of co-occurring words, possibly involved in "syntagmatic" relations. On the other hand, a statistical uns...

RIASSUNTO Il problema della facilità di interazione fra gli utenti e il software GIS è ampiamente conosciuto. La possibilità di utilizzare una interfaccia in linguaggio naturale verso le applicazioni GIS diviene dunque strategica. Una sfida importante, a maggior ragione nel contesto delle interfacce in lin-guaggio naturale, rimane quella di migrare...

In this paper we present an original approach to natural language query interpretation which has been implemented within the FuLL (Fuzzy Logic and Language) Italian project of BC S.r.l. In particular, we discuss here the creation of linguistic and ontological resources, together with the exploitation of existing ones, for natural language-driven da...

This article will concern the specification of the conceptual and linguistic constraints for the construction of a knowledge base in classical architecture, an operation that involves the structuring of the concepts of the domain to which appropriate linguistic terms must be associated. Our approach will take into account models of conceptual dicti...
