RT Journal DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 54815713 LA English T1 Two techniques for the identification of phrases in full text A1 Godby, Carol Jean., OCLC., Office of Research., YR 1995 JF Annual review of OCLC research (Online). AB This study compares two methods for automatically discovering content-bearing phrases that would improve searchable and browsable indexes of full-text documents. The first method parses the text for noun phrases and uses heuristics to identify the best content-bearing phrases. The second method identifies these phrases by applying frequency and association statistics to the text. It is argued that the second method promises to give results that are just as good as the first, and has the advantages of being conceptually simpler and more generic.
