Lexical semantics in electronic dictionaries for NLP, automatic indexing and text retrieval. This is the subject of my current work and was the subject of my doctoral dissertation in computational linguistics at CIS in Munich (1996). The subject of the thesis was the development of a semantic encoding of nouns for the (German) electronic dictionary CISLEX (Click here for an English abstract).
Morphological and semantic analysis of German compound nouns
Applications of computational linguistics in the area of
augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) for people with speech
and language disorders. I started my work in this area in 1992 as a researcher
within the KOMBE
project and wrote DEA-thesis in the framework of this project (Un système
d'acquisition lexicale pour le projet KOMBE (A lexical acquisition system
for the KOMBE project.
During my stay in Dundee, Scotland (January 1996 to September 1997), I was working within the WordKeys project at the Applied Computing department. Work on the project combined research on electronic dictionaries, text retrieval and AAC.
