Article
Full-text available
In this work, we report large-scale semantic role annotation of arguments in the Turkish dependency treebank, and present the first comprehensive Turkish semantic role labeling (SRL) resource: Turkish Proposition Bank (PropBank). We present our annotation workflow that harnesses crowd intelligence, and discuss the procedures for ensuring annotation...
Chapter
Turkish belongs to the Turkic family of languages and these languages exhibit tremendous similarity when it comes to morphological and grammatical structure but have somewhat different lexicons owing to various historical, geographical, and cultural interactions with neighboring languages. In this chapter we briefly cover the similarities and diffe...

Formal Grammar which is introduced by Chomsky is one of the most important development in Natural Language Processing, a branch of Artificial Intelligence. The mathematical reresentation of languages can be possible using Formal Grammars. Almost all natural languages have word classes such as noun, adjective, verb. In addition to this one sentence...
Conference Paper
An intrusion detection system (IDS) monitors the network traffic looking for suspicious or malicious activities or policy violations, which could represent an attack or unauthorized access. Traditional systems were designed to detect known attacks but cannot identify unknown threats. They most commonly detect known threats based on predefined rules...

In this paper, we present a novel method for Document Classification that uses semantic matrix representation of Turkish sentences by concentrating on the sentence phrases and their concepts in text. Our model has been designed to find phrases in a sentence, identify their relations with specific concepts, and represent the sentences as coarse-grai...
Article
This paper presents an exploration and evaluation of a diverse set of features that influence word-sense disambiguation (WSD) performance. WSD has the potential to improve many natural language processing (NLP) tasks as being one of the most crucial steps in the area. It is known that exploiting effective features and removing redundant ones help i...

In this paper we present a framework for extraction of Turkish phrases and their concepts. The objective of the study is meeting the requirement of sources for Turkish Semantic Extractions and represent a Turkish sentence at phrase-concept level. The semantic and grammatical analysis of a sentence is a basic content of Natural Language Processing (...

There is an emerging interest in developing bio-functionalisation routes serving as platforms for assembling diverse enzymes onto material surfaces. Specifically, the fabrication of next-generation, laboratory-on-a-chip-based sensing and energy-harvesting systems requires controlled orientation and organisation of the proteins at the inorganic inte...
Conference Paper
In this study, comments about technology brands are collected from a popular Turkish website, eks¸is¨ozl ¨uk, and classified as positive or negative. Turkish text is preprocessed with different kinds of filters and then modeled with 1-gram, 2-grams and 3-grams language models. Naive Bayes (NB), Support Vector Machines (SVM) and K nearest neighbor (...
Conference Paper
In this paper we present a framework for extraction of inference rules from Turkish documents, such as "A solved B ~ A found a solution to B". Many natural language processing tasks, such as question answering, information retrieval and machine translation can benefit tremendously from inference rules. Our framework consists of three layers: constr...
Conference Paper
Drastically document increase in Web requires semantic web applications in order to lead the Web to its full potential. Extracting important phrases in a document facilitates finding expected information. In this paper, a new approach that is labeling the main subject, main predicate, main location and main date of an electronic document is introdu...
Chapter
In this paper, the effect of different windowing schemes on word sense disambiguation accuracy is presented. Turkish Lexical Sample Dataset has been used in the experiments. We took the samples of ambiguous verbs and nouns of the dataset and used bag-of-word properties as context information. The experi-ments have been repeated for different window...
Conference Paper
Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) has become even more important research area in recent years with the widespread usage of Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications. WSD task has two variants: “Lexical Sample” and “All Words” approaches. Lexical Sample approach disambiguates the occurrences of a small sample of target words that were previously...
Conference Paper
Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) is the task of choosing the most appropriate sense of a word having multiple senses in a given context. Collocational features acquired from the words in neighborship with the ambiguous word are one of the important knowledge sources in this area. This paper explores the effective sets of collocational features in Tu...

This paper presents the results of main part-of-speech tagging of Turkish sentences using Conditional Random Fields (CRFs). Although CRFs are applied to many different languages for part-of-speech (POS) tagging, Turkish poses interesting challenges to be modeled with them. The challenges include issues related to the statistical model of the proble...

The K-means algorithm is quite sensitive to the cluster centers selected initially and can perform different clusterings depending on these initialization conditions. Within the scope of this study, a new method based on the Fuzzy ART algorithm which is called Improved Fuzzy ART (IFART) is used in the determination of initial cluster centers. By us...

In this paper, we present a rule based model for morphological disambiguation of Uyghur language. Morphological ambiguity is a challenging problem for agglutinative languages. Because there is a possibility a word takes unlimited number of suffixes. If that language has more suffixes, then the ambiguity problem gets more complex. Uyghur language is...
Article
This paper describes the differences between Uyghur (spoken in Sin Kiang, China) and Turkish Grammar on the sentence level. There are not many researches about natural language processing on Turkic languages except than Turkish. Uyghur language is one of the old and rich language in the Turkic language family. Even though both of these languages be...

In this work, we present a MT system from Turkmen to Turkish. Our system exploits the similarity of the languages by using a modified version of direct translation method. However, the complex inflectional and derivational morphology of the Turkic languages necessitate special treatment for word-by-word translation model. We also employ morphology-...

Uygur dili yaygın olarak, Doğu Türkistan'da kullanılmaktadır. Bunlar Hariç, Orta Asya, Afganistan, Türkiye gibi Ülkelere bile birçok kişiler tarafından kullanılmaktadır. Uygurlar günümüze kadar birçok alfabe kullanmıştır. Günümüzde Uygurlar yaşadığı bölgelere göre farklı alfabeler kullanmaktadır. Orta Asya da yaşayan Uygurlar Kırıl alfabesini kulla...

We present an approach to MT between Tur- kic languages and present results from an implementation of a MT system from Turk- men to Turkish. Our approach relies on am- biguous lexical and morphological transfer augmented with target side rule-based re- pairs and rescoring with statistical language models.

This paper describes the implementation of a two-level morphological analyzer for the Turkmen Language. Like all Turkic languages, the Turkmen Language is an agglutinative language that has productive inflectional and derivational suffixes. In this work, we implemented a finite-state two-level morphological analyzer for Turkmen Language by using Xe...
Conference Paper
This paper presents a statistical lexical ambiguity resolution method in direct transfer machine translation models in which the target language is Turkish. Since direct transfer MT models do not have full syntactic information, most of the lexical ambiguity resolution methods are not very helpful. Our disambiguation model is based on statistical l...

In data mining and knowledge discovery, similarity between objects is one of the central concepts. A measure of similarity can be user-defined, but an important problem is defining similarity on the basis of data. In this paper we introduce the problem of finding the pair-wise similarities of quantitative valued sequences where each sequence is a l...

We evaluate the music composer classification using an approximation of the Kolmogorov distance be-tween different music pieces. The distance approximation has recently been suggested by Vitanyi and his col-leagues. They use a clustering method to evalute the distance metric. However the clustering is too slow for large (>60) data sets. We suggest...
