Abstract:

As part of a research program aimed at determining the parameters influencing the effectiveness of a message retrieval system, a collection of 10, 000 technical abstracts was indexed and retrieval experiments were conducted with them. Since part of the work involved the development and test operation of an associative retrieval system, basic data about the distribution of words and word strings were gathered in preparing the system for test and trial. These statistics were thought to be of possible interest to other workers in the field and are gathered as a series of loosely connected papers in this volume under the following groupings Characteristics and Indexing of GE Data Base Comparison of Manual and Machine Selected Vocabularies Vocabulary Distribution Studies, and Studies of Content Bearing Units in Text.
