Synonyme bei der Erzeugung, Generierung und Produktion natürlicher Sprache
Varying words in natural language generation requires the use of syn-onyms. In traditional dictionaries, however, the formal representation of synonyms is difficult due to their dependence on context. In addition to that, not all synonyms enhance the readability and comprehensibility of a text equally well. It is proposed to take the context of synonyms into account by using a spreading activation mechanism in a semantic network. Several criteria are discussed to choose among the so-obtained alternatives.
