Paper Abstract

Anaphors, like polysemy, are basic natural components of language. Thus, we show how we manage such phenomena in the context of our development platform DOCAL at the University of Technology of Compiegne. It is understood that these problems are too vast to be directly tackled in their entirety. Thus our field of study is restricted for example by being limited to just endophoric pronominal references. We touch upon the morpho-syntactic filtering of polysemic expressions in order to concentrate more fully on the semantic analysis. To solve the ambiguities, our system relies on the notion of semantic markers. If this is not sufficient, the defined rules at the level of the semantic dictionary are called upon and which restrain the interaction between the different concepts in the sentence. Finally, if several interpretations are still plausible, the system will choose the one that best integrates in its knowledge based. Finally, we elaborate the mechanisms that have just been presented and above all the assimilation module of the resulting semantic networks to the processing of certain endophoric pronominal references.
