If you are in Kolkata/Pune, India…a request.

No emails are given for the authors of: Identify Web-page Content meaning using Knowledge based System for Dual Meaning Words but their locations were listed as Kolkata and Pune, India. I would appreciate your pointing the authors to this blog as one source of information on topic maps.

The authors have re-invented a small part of topic maps to deal with synonymy using XSD syntax. Quite doable but I think they would be better served by either using topic maps or engaging in improving topic maps.

Reinvention is rarely a step forward.

Abstract:

Meaning of Web-page content plays a big role while produced a search result from a search engine. Most of the cases Web-page meaning stored in title or meta-tag area but those meanings do not always match with Web-page content. To overcome this situation we need to go through the Web-page content to identify the Web-page meaning. In such cases, where Webpage content holds dual meaning words that time it is really difficult to identify the meaning of the Web-page. In this paper, we are introducing a new design and development mechanism of identifying the Web-page content meaning which holds dual meaning words in their Web-page content.

    Perhaps someone should tell them about thesauri and controlled vocabulary standards, too.

    I’m surprised at the use of the phrase “dual meaning words” instead of “homograph” — is that too linguistics-jargony for computer scientists? Also, I wonder what they do when a word has more than two meanings?

    Good point about # of meanings for one word.

    Curious about the stats on word meanings — how many words have two? versus three? Different, not shades of same, say bow (as in archery) versus bow (as to royalty). How many cases would we miss if just covering dual meanings?
