Different behavior with Catalan numbers

Submitted by jmfc90 on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 13:03

I am having some troubles working with numbers in Catalan. In your demo page I use the text "tres mil" with Catalan language and using the default configuration and I get the following output:


But If I use the text "nou mil" with exactly the same configuration I get the output:

nou mil
nou 1000

Verb at the beginning of a sentence in spanish

Submitted by samuelhrg on Tue, 01/10/2017 - 18:23

I found a small problem with the PoS tagging. In the sentence "Esperé a que volvieras" Freeling tags "Esperé" as a noun. If instead I use "Yo esperé a que volvieras" then "Yo" is tagged as the noun and "esperé" as the verb.
I can guess where the problem comes from. In spanish you don't need to specify the noun at the beginning of the sentence because the verb gives you this information. "Esperé" means "I waited", there's no need to write "Yo esperé".

incorrect language on Semantic Graph Frame lemma

Submitted by carlesg on Fri, 07/29/2016 - 14:37


When I use the SemanticGraph to ask for the lemmas of the Frames on the Graph, I get the lemma in English, although I configure Freeling in Spanish, and I ask a question in Spanish.
If I try the Spanish sentence 'Dime el valor del coche.', the tagger says:

-------- TAGGER results -----------
Di decir VMM02S0
me me PP1CS00
el el DA0MS0
valor valor NCMS000
de de SP
el el DA0MS0
coche coche NCMS000

Domain specific NLP

Submitted by flopezbello on Tue, 07/05/2016 - 20:51

Is it possible to train FreeLing in specific domains? More precisely, we are thinking of processing medical (health and genomics) text, which includes specific terminology as genes, fenotypes (or health conditions / traits) and proteins.

Also, it would be very interesting to add (besides specific dictionaries) onthologies that pertain to these domains.

We can assume that English is the base language.


Information about DepTreeler labels for spanish

Submitted by jlarteaga on Fri, 06/17/2016 - 06:00

Hi! I was looking for some descriptions of the tags used in the DepTreeler module for spanish since the documentation only offers explanation for the Txala parser. Searching through other posts someone adviced trying to deduce their meaning out from context, but considering my lack of serious knowledge in linguistics at least a little guidance would be really appreciated...
Thanks in advance!
