Finding Medical Term Variations using Parallel Corpora and Distributional Similarity
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 6thWorkshop on Ontologies and Lexical Resources (OntoLex 2010), 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
We describe a method for the identification of medical term variation using parallel corpora and measures of distributional similarity. Our approach is based on automatic word alignment and standard phrase extraction techniques commonly used in statistical machine translation. Combined with pattern-based filters we obtain encouraging results compared to related approaches using similar data-driven techniques.
