Abstract:

This paper first briefly describes the architecture of PLUM, BBNs text processing system, and then reports on some experiments evaluating the effectiveness of the design at the component level. Three features are unusual in PLUMs architecture a domain independent deterministic parser, processing of the resulting fragments at the semantic and discourse level, and probabilistic models.
