Project 1: "Computing Subordinating and Coordinating Discourse Relations"
On an abstract level, discourse relations can be divided into subordinating and coordinating types. This project will study how the different types are linguistically determined, and provide techniques for automatically detecting the two different types of discourse relations in open-domain texts. In particular, it aims to explore the role of tense, thematic roles and entailment relations of text segments. This project is part of the Meaning Annotation Project and is concerned with the development of a large-scale deep semantic annotation of text and its application of machine learning methods. The PhD candidate will be supervised by Prof. J. Bos.

Project 2: "Robust Interpretation of Comparative Expressions"
The family of comparatives and equative expressions is known for its high variety of syntactic constructions and interaction with ellipsis. The aim of this project is to define a classification of comparative expressions useful for automatically interpreting open-domain texts. It will investigate to what extent comparatives can be analysed lexically, and what further techniques are required to compute disambiguated semantic representations. This project is part of the Meaning Annotation Project and is concerned with the development of a large-scale deep semantic annotation of text and its application of machine learning methods. The PhD candidate will be supervised by Prof. J. Bos.

Additional information as well as a complete description of the project can be obtained from the principal investigator.
