Abstract:

The project concerned with automated analysis of language style and structure in technical and other documents has had four primary emphases during the 1970-71 research year. One emphasis was the development of approaches to the modeling of thesauri, so that existing thesauri can be precisely described and new thesauri more adequate to a wide range of information retrieval requirements can be developed. A second emphasis was the writing of statistical data-gathering programs and the testing of statistical analytical tools on that data this work is directed toward a statistical support package for natural language research. A third emphasis was upon beginning the development of a theory of prefixing in English in order to provide a basis for automated handling of prefixes. The fourth emphasis was upon programming a FORTRAN IV, Honeywell 635 version of the list-structure VIA programs, which are used for content analysis as well as for inputs to the research on thesauri and statistical analysis.
