• A Framework for Interpreting Bridging Anaphora

      Nand, P; Yeap, W (Springer, 2012)
      In this paper we present a novel framework for resolving bridging anaphora.We argue that anaphora, particularly bridging anaphora, is used as a shortcut device similar to the use of compound nouns. Hence, the two natural ...
    • A HMM POS Tagger for Micro-blogging Type Texts

      Nand, P; Perera, R; Lal, R (Springer Verlag, 2014)
      The high volume of communication via micro-blogging type messages has created an increased demand for text processing tools customised the unstructured text genre. The available text processing tools developed on structured ...

      Nand, P; Perera, R; Sreekumar, A; Lingmin, H (Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), 2014)
      This paper describes the strategy and the results of a location mining system used for the ALTA-2014 shared task competition. The task required the participants to identify the location mentions in 1003 Twitter test messages ...
    • A relational framework for interpreting anaphora

      Nand, P; Yeap, W; Nand, P; Yeap, W (Global science and Technology Forum (GSTF), 2011)
      In this paper we present a novel way to resolve indirect or bridging anaphora which gives us a richer interpretation then the current frameworks. The new framework uses the core set of relations that have been used to ...
    • An evaluation of POS tagging for tweets using HMM modeling

      Nand, P; Perera, R (Australian Computer Society (ACS), 2015)
      Recently there has been an increased demand for natural language processing tools that work well on unstructured and noisy texts such as texts from Twitter messages. It has been shown that tools developed for structured ...
    • Challenges in anaphora resolution in the news media genre

      Nand, P; Nand, P (2007)
      This paper discusses the characteristics of anaphora found in written News Media genre and describes an initial implementation of an algorithm to resolve the anaphors. The paper forms part of wider research aimed at using ...
    • Generation of anaphoric noun phrases and their coreferential properties

      Nand, P; Yeap, W; Nand, P; Yeap, W (Global science and Technology Forum (GSTF), 2010)
      This paper investigates the generative processes involved in the formation of noun phrases (NPs) from an existing clause in a discourse. A speaker or writer is able to generate a range of NPs from a stated clause to co-refer ...

    • Recent Advances in Natural Language Generation: A Survey and Classification of the Empirical Literature

      Perera, R; Nand, P (Slovak Academy of Sciences, 2017)
      Natural Language Generation (NLG) is defined as the systematic approach for producing human understandable natural language text based on non-textual data or from meaning representations. This is a significant area which ...
    • Towards a discourse coherent structure

      Nand, P; Yeap, WK (INSTICC publications, 2010)
      In this paper we argue that coherence relations between discourse units are ultimately based on mentioned discourse entities embedded in the units participating in the relation. Coherence relations as discussed in most ...
