A Comparative Analysis of Manual and Vector Semantic Organisation using a Bilingual Dictionary of Plains Cree

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This thesis shall address the nature of, and various possible approaches to, semantic classification in a bilingual dictionary setting, in this instance, in that of a low-resource language (Plains Cree/nêhiyawêwin, ISO:crk). In doing this, we shall discuss the distinct, yet partially overlapping advantages of manual and computationally-generated semantic classifications, the methodologies and resources involved in implementing each, and the general quality of results to be expected in either instance. Through this, we will also outline a variety of possible related approaches to ontology-based vector semantic classification (or, organisation), as well as outline the possible uses of current vector semantic classification results from these methodologies. Finally, the nature of semantic classification using linguistically ‘neutral’ semantic classification ontologies, and the various advantages and disadvantages thereof, are to be discussed throughout.
