@incollection{Damova-Mariana2014-178094, title = {Natural Language Interaction with Semantic Web Knowledge Bases and Linked Open Data}, abstract = {Cultural heritage appears to be a very useful use case for Semantic Web technologies. The domain provides with plenty of circumstances where linkages between different knowledge sources are required to ensure access to rich information and respond to the needs of professionals dealing with cultural heritage content. Semantic Web technologies offer the technological backbone to meet the requirement of integrating heterogeneous data easily, but they are still more adapted to be consumed by computers than by humans, especially non-engineers or developers. This chapter is about a technique which allows interaction in natural language with semantic knowledge bases. The proposed technique offers a method that allows querying a semantic repository in natural language and obtaining results from it as a coherent text. This unique solution includes several steps of transition from natural language to SPARQL and from RDF to coherent multilingual descriptions, using the Grammatical Framework, GF. The approach builds on a semantic knowledge infrastructure in RDF, it is based on OWLIM-SE and the data integration method Reason-able View supplied with an ontological reference layer. The latter is connected via formal rules with abstract representations derived from the syntactic trees of natural language input using the GF resource grammar library. }, booktitle = {Towards multilingual Semantic Web}, author = {Damova, Mariana and Dannélls, Dana and Mateva, Maria and Enache, Ramona and Ranta, Aarne}, year = {2014}, publisher = {Springer}, adress = {Berlin}, ISBN = {978-3-662-43585-4}, pages = {211--226}, } @article{Borin-Lars2014-198286, title = {Geographic visualization of place names in Swedish literary texts}, abstract = {This article describes the development of a geographical information system (GIS) at Språkbanken as part of a visualization solution to be used in an archive of historical Swedish literary texts.

Some of these problems form a central part in the development of methods and tools for the automatic analysis of historical Swedish literary texts at our research unit. We discuss the advantages and challenges of covering large-scale spelling variation in place names from different sources and in generating maps with focus on different time periods. }, author = {Borin, Lars and Dannélls, Dana and Olsson, Leif-Jöran}, year = {2014}, volume = {29}, number = {3}, pages = {400--404}, } @inProceedings{Dannélls-Dana2014-198499, title = {Extracting a bilingual semantic grammar from FrameNet-annotated corpora}, abstract = {We present the creation of an English-Swedish FrameNet-based grammar in Grammatical Framework. The aim of this research is to make existing framenets computationally accessible for multilingual natural language applications via a common semantic grammar API, and to facilitate the porting of such grammar to other languages. In this paper, we describe the abstract syntax of the semantic grammar while focusing on its automatic extraction possibilities. We have extracted a shared abstract syntax from ~58,500 annotated sentences in Berkeley FrameNet (BFN) and ~3,500 annotated sentences in Swedish FrameNet (SweFN). The abstract syntax defines 769 frame-specific valence patterns that cover 77,8% examples in BFN and 74,9% in SweFN belonging to the shared set of 471 frames. As a side result, we provide a unified method for comparing semantic and syntactic valence patterns across framenets.}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC)}, author = {Dannélls, Dana and Gruzitis, Normunds}, year = {2014}, publisher = {European Language Resources Association}, ISBN = {978-2-9517408-8-4}, } @inProceedings{Dannélls-Dana2014-201944, title = {Controlled Natural Language Generation from a Multilingual FrameNet-based Grammar}, abstract = {This paper presents a currently bilingual but potentially multilingual FrameNet-based grammar library implemented in Grammatical Framework.
