Extracting Specialized Terminology from Linguistic Corpora

Abstract In this paper, we present our approach to automatically extracting German terminology in the domain of grammar using texts from the online information system grammis as our corpus. We analyze existing repositories of German grammatical terminology and develop Part-of-speech patterns for our extraction thereby showing the importance of unigrams in this domain. We contrast the results of the automatic extraction with a manually extracted standard. By comparing the performance of well-known statistical measures, we show how measures based on corpus comparison outperform alternative methods.
