Simonetta Montemagni and Lucy Vanderwende
This chapter presents evidence for preferring to extract semantic information from a syntactic analysis of a dictionary definition rather than directly from the definition string itself when the information to be extracted is found in the differentiae. We present examples of how very complex information can be extracted from the differentiae of the definition using structural analysis patterns, and why string patterns would fail to do the same.
